I never felt my IUD but my bf mentioned it, I checked and I can feel it more than before. It doesn't stick out of vagina, am I still protected?
"Strung out": Don't get "strung out" if you can't feel the IUD string any longer but the iUD device itself. Get a GYN MD to check the placement immediately, because they have been known to be partially extruded with severe cramping and at that point are no longer an effective contraceptive and you will "strike out" with an unplanned pregnancy. ...Read more

Is it possible for a penis to hit an IUD during sex? It feels like mine got jammed into my vagina walls last night & now it's hard to urinate...
Sort of...: Since the iud is in the uterus, the penis won't hit it directly during intercourse; however, it is common depending on anatomy, the comparative sizes of the partners, and the vigor of sex for the penis to hit the cervix, the opening of the uterus, or compress the uterus. Usually that should not cause a problem. If you are having symtpoms, or pain, you may have a UTI which can happen after sex. ...Read more

How safe is orgasm after insertion of IUD if fresh blood/spotting/mild clotting is present? If the IUD has slipped into vagina, will this cause harm?
Coincidence: Fresh blood/spotting/mild clotting after IUD insertion close to the time of orgasm could potentially indicate 3 things: 1. That the IUD, especially if it was placed by an unexperienced "operator" has been dislogded, 2. Possibly all the way into the vagina; 3. That it was present because of the insertion of the IUD, which can be normal andthe orgasm has nothing to do with it. ...Read more
