And it's freaking me out. I can feel the point of it and I don't want it to push through. Is this an ok, normal thing or should I definitely not be able to feel it?

You should be able to feel the string but if you can feel the IUD it may have fallen out of position. I would call your doctor and ask them about it.

I don't think it was in this spot before. I just noticed it when I was checking my strings. I've only had it a little over a month. I had one inserted jan 2nd, it fell out halfway and I went back on the 3rd to get a new one. I was charged 700 for each unit so I am going to be so bummed if I have to get this one removed as well. I really wanted this bc to work for me :(

Oh and it isn't coming through my cervix, it is actually pushing the vaginal tissue out in a little lump in the wall below my cervix.



Sorry for the extreme tmi.

I have no idea what you mean...must be the lack of sleep...



But let me try to help, it is still inside the cervix? And you do you feel the strings shorter or longer than before?

Damn that sounds uncomfortable, just the description makes me cringe. Yeah, that's not where it's supposed to be. It sounds like you're probably going to have to have this one removed too. You may need to choose a different bc method. :( Make sure to use condoms or something if you have sex before it gets taken care of, I don't know if the IUD would be effective as bc if it has moved out of place.

I think they're the same. It's just when I touch the wall of my vagina I can feel a hard lump under the skin. It is kind of hard to explain. You know like when you are pregnant and you can tell when there's a pointy elbow poking out someplace? It is lik that but tiny.

Awww crap. You're probably right about that. I just had sex twice... :? Maybe that's what dislodged it. Fml I have a three month old. :lol:

I remember when I got Mirena one of the risks was perforation, where it pushes through the uterus. It's also possible to have it partially perforate and get embedded, I think that might be what's going on with yours. Hopefully it will be easy to remove since it's close to your cervix.

Ugh that sounds scary. I hope it's okay. I guess I have to call my Gyn tomorrow. :?

Sorry. :( I'm sure it will work out okay, they'll probably just have to remove it. I hope you can find a bc that will work well for you. Good luck! :)

I think you would at least have some kind of discomfort or cramping if the IUD perforated, I could be wrong but I think you have some kind of symptom.

I don't have any pain or bleeding. I felt again and I think it is sitting in the crease between my cervix and uterine wall
