I’m 26, never been pregnant, and had my Mirena inserted right before Christmas last year, so it’s been almost 4 months. For various reasons, I wasn’t able to get back to the doctor until March 21 when I had a pap smear and they checked my IUD as they would have at my 6 week check-up. Everything was fine. Before my exam, I’d only had random spotting, no unusual cramps and could feel my strings.
I haven’t been able to feel my strings for about a week, now. I haven’t had any bleeding or unusual cramping since my exam, or at anytime felt the hard end of the IUD coming out. I probably check every 3 or 4 days. I know things move around, but usually if I can’t feel them, I can again within the next day or two. Should I make another appointment to see if it’s moved? Would there be some indication that it’s moved other than not being able to feel the strings? I also just got over a yeast infection, if that is relevant.
