What. A. Journey.
If you did not know, IUDs have two strings attached to them — they feel like fishing wire. The strings are there to make removal easy. In the past, women have been told to check their strings periodically to make sure the IUD is still in place, but my doctor said that you really don't need to check them if the IUD is inserted correctly. Also, your sexual partner shouldn't feel the strings! If they do, you can request that the strings be trimmed shorter.
Hell, yes, I stopped at McDonald's because I deserved fries after all that.
