I got the Kyleena IUD inserted on September 26 2017. I’ve noticed some heavy cramping and slightly heavy bleeding the past two days, when I went to check for the strings I couldn’t find them, even after multiple times. I had my boyfriend check as well and he couldn’t find the strings either. I don’t know what to do. I can’t get an appointment until Thursday the 10th but I don’t know if it’s urgent enough to were I have to go to the emergency room. HELP!
I don't believe you need the ER but the strings should be visible for 3 cm (one and one fifth inches), after trimming, outside the cervix. I believe it has been inserted incorrectly by someone not competent to complete the procedure. Your uterus cannot siphon the strings up.
