... won't come out ???
I just went to have mine taken out after the full 5 years (never had any problems with it) and have a new one put in and they couldn't get it out as the strings were too short. Tried U/S and after over an hour + they decided I should go to the hospital to get it removed with a special video camera and some iv drugs for the pain! Not too thrilled but will probably get another one as I do like not getting my period and this will probably be my last one d/t my age. Hope you have better luck Annie!
I have the same concern. I've had my Mirena in for 4 years and 1 month, and cannot find the strings. I don't have periods at all anymore, so that was great, but lately, I'm having BAD pelvic pain! I'm worried about what the removal will be like since I haven't found my strings in several months.
