I'm posting to ask any people with IUDs, who are also accessing their healthcare on the NHS in the UK, if you've ever gone about getting the strings shortened/dealt with? I'm not sure if I go to the clinic where I got it or if I can see someone else or...whatever.
There are certain times in my cycle when my poor boyfriend gets prodded and stabbed except for a few very specific positions. It's definitely wires, not an expelling device I have performed extensive prodding/checks and it's definitely just wires.
He said he would just deal with it, and I took that to mean it wasn't a big deal, but today I happened to look at the head of his penis shortly after sex and there were marks. Had I known he was marked by it, I would have done something almost at once. I am not ok with having something akin to vagina dentata. However cool it may seem as a concept, I care deeply about my boyfriend and his penis, and the compromise for condomless sex should not be a sore willy : (
I feel very guilty and would like to remedy this asap.
Thanks in advance wonderful people.
