In brief: Many

Many women with the Mirena (levonorgestrel) iud will not have a period or will have irregular spotting after placement.
If you cannot feel the string and are worried about whether it is still there, make an appointment with your doctor. They can check for proper placement with an internal gyne exam and if it is ok, they can show you how to feel for it. In the meantime, until your appointment, use condoms or another form of birth control until you know that your Mirena (levonorgestrel) is still in place.
