Not sure if I just posted something a sec ago, my daughter clicked something. Lol

Okay, so I just got the Paragard IUD in about two or three weeks ago. Two days ago I was feeling for my strings and I can't feel them. Common problem, I hear, and I'm assuming it may be out of place. My biggest concern at the moment is my cervix, it seems out of reach, had a bit of a struggle checking, which is unusual because I can usually feel it right away. It seems like its curved, like my cervix is pointing is a slant direction, which leads to believe that yeah, it's gotta be out of place. I'm feeling real light cramps, but not sure if it's the usual cramping which has stopped after a week, but I'll feel real light cramping every now and then, not really a bother. But I feel like its moving around in me. But I think that that's just in my head, but reading other women's experiences, I'm aware it's possible. And starting yesterday up till just a minute ago, this gush of white discharge came out, I felt it and ran to the bathroom because i thought it would make a mess. So of course, I got online to research it, and found a post that was about the signs of iud slipping out of place. And the woman said one of the symptoms is discharge, which I'm also aware can happen if it's in place. Not freaking out, just wondering if anyone has had similar issues. I just can't believe this is happening after I seemed to have barely got it in, if it is really happening.

I've contacted the OB/GYN to make an appointment, but I guess they are busy because I left a voicemail and haven't returned my call. :(

When I had my Paragard I had a really hard time finding the strings. I had to put my right foot up on the toilet and stand just right, so finally I started asking my partner for help. If you have someone you trust who can check for the strings, I would go that route! I was always in a panic about mine not being in place.
