Get checked: uf this is a change, you might need to get checked to make sure the IUD is in the right place or that you don't have an infection.

How should I check the IUD string in me?

Feel string @cervix: It is recommended to check the string after each menstrual cycle. You need to place one finger gently into your vagina, touch your cervix, and feel for the string. It should feel like a fine piece of fishing line. If you can't feel it, check with your gynecologist.

No: If you or your partner are having discomfort with the string, it can be cut shorter.

Depends: Copper iud, paraguard, works right after incertion, whereas Mirena (levonorgestrel) may take a full cycle to become effective, so if you had Mirena (levonorgestrel) inserted, you will need to use alternative contraception for the first month.
