Okay so tonight I was checking for my strings because I have had some pain on my left side. I was thinking where my ovary was. anyways so I was checking and couldnt find them. Of corse I freaked out and looked up on the internet, it says call your dr immediately... well um it was 12am on a saturday night so... So i get in the bath and check again. dig around until I can find what I think is a string. IDK its hard but is up in my cervix a bit and not hanging out. Sorry for tmi! I had to kind of bare down to find that. And when I tried to move it a bit to see if maybe the string was just hung up or something it caused a sharp pain where the pain has been. not like a horrible pain, but like a pin prick.... Normally my strings hang out anywhere from about a .25-.5 in so for them to be up in the cervix doesnt sound good... what does everyone think? I'm planning on calling a dr on monday morning. i dont actually have a dr yet because we moved so I'm hoping I can find someone. Anyone ever experience this??
I used to have a lot of ovary pain during ovulation on my right side! It's possible that is what you're feeling, but if the pain is new, I would really consider seeing the doctor for a check-up.
In regards to the short strings, again, I'd see the doctor just to be sure, but I know in my case, depending on what time of my cycle it was, I could either find my stings very very easily, or sometimes I wouldn't even be able to reach them to feel them.
Since your cervix moves up and down during your cycle, this might be why you can't feel them right now.
yeah see thats the think, I have noticed the difference during my cycle before, but I have always had no problem feeling them- the length would just vary. I'm going to check again tonight in the bath. I used to have ovulation pain too but it would last a day or maybe just a few hours. This has been going on for over a week now.
ugh!! Mine actually stopped hurting, makes me wonder whether it popped and is going down or if I had two and one popped... It was 3x4cm. I'm supposed to make an appt in a month to have it rechecked. I'm going to call a different dr though and have them check it. This lady was nice, but she doesnt put in iuds because of religious beliefs so she really didnt know much about them... I asked her if the iud caused it, she said no, like why would it do that?
