Hi everyone. I just got my Paragard last week. I have a few questions. First, how do you know if your strings are longer or shorter than normal? I can feel mine but they seem to be coiled around my cervix so I cant really tell the length. Additionally, I'm incredibly paranoid that my uterus is going to expel the IUD. Its really hard to resist the urge to check every time I go to the bathroom to see if I can feel plastic at my cervix. Am I just being a basketcase about this? Thank you to everyone in advance, this forum was incredibly helpful when I was debating whether to go with an IUD.
