Can your dh feel it? Is that normal?

I post on another board where a lady got hers and says her dh complains he can feel it. I'm seriously considering getting one, but if dh is gonna feel it, then I'll have to stick to condoms lol .

I have the copper one but the strings are still there with both IUD's. DH can't feel mine when were intimate. Make sure that the dr keeps the strings kinda long so that they don't poke "him". We've not had that problem and I've had it for about 5 months now.

I have the paragard, but dh did have problems feeling the strings. I went back to the dr. and he cut them shorter and we haven't had any problems since.

hey, I've had mine for 3 months now. I haven't had any problems personally.. only.. DH said that he could feel the strings poking him and it hurt.. and I told the doctor and he was like "really? I've never had anyone want me to cut them for that reason before!" lol. But yeah, he cut the strings a lot shorter, and now DH can't feel them at all.

it hasnt helped my AF though.

My bf can feel them every so often but says it doesn't hurt. As for me. They poke me alot. It is very annoying and hurts occassionally. I have cramping with it. I have had it for 2 months and have not stopped bleeding, only spotting though.

I had one for over 3 years. Hubby could feel the strings and we had them cut, then the strings poked him, so we had them snipped so they can't be felt at all... It took about 4 months for my period to go away completely. After that I only had occational spotting.

I've had mine for almost 4 months and I have a huge appitite. They have a little hormorne in them. I wonder if that's why I am hungry or if it's because I'm fully breastfeeding still. But I can't even tell its there and neither can dh. I haven't had a period either but that could be because I am breastfeeding too.
