See your GYN: Iud help you should have your ob/gyn look and make sure it is in place. If it is not in the uterine cavity it's not doing it's job. The strings on a pargard should be soft and your partner should not feel them when you are having intercourse. You are at increased risk of pregnancy if your iud is not in the correct location.

Your cervix might also be loosely closed or "incompetent". Heavy cramping could also push it out. An ultrasound can confirm if your uterus is anatomically normal.

Uterine cramping: One possibility is that you are due for your period. Sometimes the first one after insertion of the iud is more painful.
