I am getting a mirena inserted this fri and the thing I am most concerned about and probably the only reason I would have it taken out is if FI could feel it during intercourse. I know they say its not supposed to happen but I wanted to hear from real people about their experiences. And if SO can feel it, was it really bothersome?

If your FI can feel it, you can go back to your doctor and have the strings trimmed.

My husband could feel it regularly for the two years I had it. But he was constantly hitting my lady parts so he was bound to feel it. After the first couple months it stopped stabbing him and he just felt it lightly

DH could feel the string for awhile. eventually it softened and curled up and he couldn’t feel it. my gyno said she could cut the strings shorter but it makes it harder to take out. i’m glad i left the string as is because it took her all of 2 seconds to pull it out. my coworker had her strings but short and it took 10 minutes for her gyno to get it out because they couldn’t find the strings.
don’t worry about it. after awhile, he won’t feel it.

SO has never felt it. It’s been 4 years. My doctor actually left the strings a bit longer. She said shorter strings are more likely to stab a guy. Her theory was that longer strings soften up and curl around the cervix. Short strings don’t have enough length to curl.

My strings curled up into my cervix. Effff. Anyway, FI can’t feel anything, but I have a feeling I’m going to be in agony when my MD tries to take this thing out.

My FI can feel it occasionally if it is at the exact wrong angle or hits my cervix or something, but its not a big deal and it isn’t stabby at all.

Just to be clear, the only thing your FI might feel would be the strings on the IUD. They are made of sterile, fishing line-like material. The IUD itself lives IN your uterus, and your FI, no matter how endowed, is not going to get his penis past your cervix and into your uterus.
Your doctor should trim the strings upon insertion to a length where they will curl up around your cervix after a few days of softening.
My husband never felt my strings, but they were always extremely high and hidden every time I checked on them. If they ever become problematic, you can move them yourself (just dont pull on them, ever!) or visit your doctor to have them trimmed more and/or repositioned.

My gyno cut mine short from the get-go, saying that when he didn’t, women always came back because their partners complained about getting poked. Being a guy himself I think he was sympathetic. 🙂
When I had it removed by a different doc (well, NP) 5 years later, it did take a bit for her to grab it, but really nbd, just a little cramping for the night and moving on with life.

@calibee79: +1. Same here. Felt it for a little while and then it got curled up around my cervix. It’s really not a big deal at all.

He can feel the strings only if he’s at a certain angle, but he said it doesn’t bother him.

Neither of my partners, including my SO, ever felt it.

My DH never felt it…. and my strings were cut short too and went up, it wasn’t too bad at time of removal, a little uncomfortable.

I am glad to see that most hubbies aren’t feeling it and I guess that if FI does feel it, I go back and ask them to shorten it?
