I wasn't sure what board to post this to, so here goes:
I gave birth to my DD in November '14 and got the Paraguard (copper) IUD in January '15. My OB said that I didn't need to worry about checking the strings, which was a relief to me because I'm really weird about touching myself on the inside. The other night, while me and DH were getting "warmed up" for some bedtime fun, I asked if he could feel any strings and he said no. I've recently switched OB/GYN's due to getting a new job in a different town, but they can't even fit me in for my PAP until May. What do you recommend I do? Find another GYN who can see me sooner or would it be safe to wait until May to be seen about it?
