I felt mine fine too for a while then,they just dissapeared. I knew it was still in me...I had to have a trans vaginal U.S. done and they confirmed the strings went up into my cervix and the whole unit was in my uterus "in the right position". The Doc advised that was o.k...wouldn't hurt anything.Now, thinking back-those strings are more like wires...and why would it be cool to have wires poking around in our uteruses? Freakin retards. Girl, get that thing out...the strings are the least of your worries with that thing.
