I Have Concerns With My Mirena Threads Can They Break
Unlikely, possible: The strings have not been known to break off but depending on how short they were cut and how large the uterine cavity, they can retract up inside and not be felt or seen. Cramps may happen especially early, if it has been in for a while and strings not felt and new cramps, an evaluation is warrented to make sure it's not in the uterine wall. ...Read more
I've had my mirena (levonorgestrel) for 2 years, am still able to feel the threads when I check. I had intercourse 7 days ago and he pulled out. Should I be concerned?
I don't see why: Since you are using one of the most effective methods of contraception and you can "feel the threads", your risk of pregnancy is really quite low (less than 1%). If you and your sex partner do not have any sexually transmissible infection, your risk of a pelvic infection are also quite remote. If you need to be reassured, consult a Gyn to be screened and ask your man to use condoms. ...Read more
Is there anyway for my boyfriend to not feel the mirena (levonorgestrel) threads during sex? He sometimes mentions it but It doesn't always bother him.

As my gp can see and feel the mirena (levonorgestrel) threads does it mean it's in place? As they wont give me a scan.
Have the mirena (levonorgestrel) and threads feel longer, been on my period for the last week and half, any chance it has moved ( got a scan tomorrow morning ) ?
Wait and see: It is good that you can still feel your strings. Since you have an ultrasound scheduled for this morning then there is no reason for us to guess. Just wait a few hours and the sonogram will confirm if it is still correctly in place or if your body is attempting to expel it. ...Read more
Could bleeding after sex be due to the mirena (levonorgestrel) coil? Had it fitted week ago, since then have bled bright red blood after sex, plus Dr cant find threads
I have the mirena (levonorgestrel) coil fitted and the threads seem longer, i've had intermittent stomach cramps could it have moved?
It's possible: It's difficult to tell the location of your iud solely by the length of the strings. It's possible that it has descended or is even in the process of being expelled. You should schedule an appointment with your doctor. He or she can do a pelvic examination and perform an ultrasound to confirm its location. Use a backup method of birth control just to be safe until your appointment. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
