I've had my mirena (levonorgestrel) 4 years now when me and my boyfriend have sex he says my strings are poking him and hurts is that a bad thing?

Why have it been so uncomfortable when I have sex on the mirena (levonorgestrel) since 2010 but never had discomfort before until these couple of weeks

Why have it been so uncomfortable when I have sex on the mirena (levonorgestrel) since 2010 but never had discomfort before until these couple of weeks
