Sometimes it's nice to get advice from experts with a lot of letter degrees behind their names, but other times, you just need to hear what another parent (with a M.O.M. behind her name) has done that has worked. You've got questions? These moms have answers.

Now it feels as if I have a tampon that is falling out. Is that the normal feeling of the strings? Just wanted to make sure this feeling is normal i mean it does not hurt or anything

I had the mirena put in almost a year ago. You should have to work to be able to feel the strings, if you can feel them too easily call your doctor to have it checked. Don't have unprotected sex until you have it looked at.
i know a girl that had mirena put in, and a week later she had to go back to the doctor's office to have it removed and replaced, because it was not put in properly.  your not supposed to be able to feel it, but you have to check the strings monthly.
