Okay so one of my younger brothers and his gf have decided to start trying for another baby. their son is 9 months going to be 1 in january. as much as i have tried to talk them in to waiting they dont want to. fine okay. she had told me she had an appointment on the 20th of this month to get her Mirena out and their goal was to get pregnant before her next OB appointment in early Nov. Now they are telling me that my brother "took it out" for her. Apparently there are tiny strings at the end of it and their doctor told them to "check it" every couple weeks to make sure it didnt fall out. Now this doesnt add up to me or my husband because i have Mirena and i have seen it. I never saw any strings attached to it nor did my dr. tell me to check it cause it can fall out easily. Of course my brother and his gf arent the most truthful people so they may just be wanting to tell everyone this so that they wont get yelled at for being irresponsible and stuff. but i wanted to ask the smartest ladies i knew if this was even possible or if was right in my assumption.
