Quoting Becky + 2:" if this is my period then great - its only really bloody discharge but cramping hurts quite a bit! my ... [snip!] ... u would know if it comes out? they arent exactly small?not sure if its the paraguard or not its the one with no hormones in xx"
Mine was hanging out of my cervix and I didn't feel a thing. I couldn't reach to check the strings, so I had no idea it was out. My ex said he thought he "felt something up there" after we had sex one time and I assumed it was the strings, so I shrugged it off (it was too late, anyhow lol). But no, I didn't feel a thing at all until my OB removed it in the office.
Mine was the copper coil without the hormones and it was called ParaGard. I don't know if there's more than one copper IUD.
