Just FYI: My ob told me that IUDs are a controversial form of birth control. They can cause you to abort a fertilized egg. Many who believe that life begins at conception are unaware of this fact. Just spreading the word...

no, mine was a little long to where my husband could feel it during sex so i simply went back and had it trimmed. it sounds like yours might be a little long as well. just go back and tell your ob that it bothers you and ask if she could trim it for you.

Tara, I didn't know that, the doctor didn't tell me anything about that. How will I know if this happens? Can you send me a personal message? I thought I asked about everything, but I guess I didn't...

That may mean that your strings are either too short or too long. You should have your doctor look check them ASAP! If the doctor says they are fine then you should have another doctor check them. I had mine in this past friday and the doctor told me to tell him if they were poking me to make sure he didn't cut them too short. He actually left them too long so I had to go to a different doctor to get 1.5cm cut off. Not only that but my husband could feel them!

If you just had it put in, it will take a few days for the string to thin out. But, if it has been longer that a few days, go back to the Dr. to have it shortened.
