I have been debating on trying Mirena for about a year after failure and bad reactions to other birth controls. I really want to give it a try but I am nervous and uncomfortable that my boyfriend will feel the string during sexual activity or get worry that he might pull it out on accident when we are messing around.

The string is very high up in the vagina just beyond the cervix. It does not extend outside the vagina. Some partners have said they can feel the string on occasion with deep penetration but it is usually not enough to be uncomfortable or interfere with sexual pleasure. Odds are very, very slim that sexual activity will dislodge the device.
