This is about mirena, my husband has told me that he is able to feel the strings when we have sex?

I was told that the strings just had to be cut down. But the strings are actually leaving marks on him. That's not supposed to happen right?

No, this is definitely NOT supposed to happen. I'd go to your OBGYN and see if it was inserted improperly (sounds like it was, either that, or it slipped). You need a healthcare professional to insert the device properly, so please seek advice from your OBGYN ASAP.

No it shouldn't happen, but you are correct, you probably do just need to have the strings cut. They were probably just left way too long for you.
