Normal: It's very common not to be able to reach your strings.... If you're worried, you can take a home pregnancy test, or see doctor/clinic and confirm strings are appropriate length. Good luck!

Mirena (levonorgestrel) has moved: Not able to reach string or not finding it means that Mirena (levonorgestrel) has moved.Get it checked by your gunecologist asap.

Good idea: If you have this concern always have the IUD checked so that you are assured that it is in the proper place inside the uterus.

Mirena (levonorgestrel): I really doubt that your IUD is creating a phenomenon that you suggest.
