My Mirena has been in for four years now, so soon I will need removal. The strings have been pushed INTO the uterus with the device. It is still in place, as they did a CAT scan and an Xray and saw it was still where it should be. But since a dr can't get to the strings to remove it, does anyone know what it will take to remove the device? Will my cervix have to be dilated?
