View Full Version : Mirena: change in string length

Would you contact your OB/GYN if you noticed a change in your mirena string length? My doc recommended checking it once and a while. I can usually feel a bit of length, enough that it curls. Today I could only feel the tips of the string. Not sure if string length would change as position of the cervix changes...right now it is very high and open. I guess my worry is that if it really is shorter than that could mean the iud has moved positions. Call doc? Wait a day or so and check again?

i personally would not be concerned. i had my strings cut short because dh could feel them... sorry tmi. i cant feel mine most of the time. but it wouldnt hurt to call your ob/gyn's nurses line to be sure if you are worried.
