Just had my mirena put in yesterday. And im guessing my strings are to long cause their pinching and poking me. Has this happened to anyone?

Mine were fine, but my doctor did tell me when I got it in that if there were irritating me (or my husband) she could cut them too. They do soften some overtime too. Do you go back to have them check? I had to go back in to have mine checked, I can't remember how long after, I want to say a couple weeks? If you have another appt you can talk to you doctor about it then.

I've had it for about 3 years. after a while they will get pushed upa nd you won't feel a thing. My doc said they should hang out just enough so you can feel them an check if it's still up there. if they are too long for you, call your doctor and he/she could probably suggest something or even cut them down for you.
