With the Mirena, are there strings that hang out? If so then how does that work when you have sex?

They are accessible outside the cervix so the inserting healthcare provider can retrieve when it is time for removal. They do not hang out of the vagina, they are high in the vagina outside the cervix. Most couples do not notice them during sexual activity.

Thank you! That was probably my only concern. That and I'm afraid of weight gain, but It's removable if needed.
