Had the mirena since jan this year. Lots of cramps and bleeding etc.

First proper perios about a month ago and bleeding and cramps gone since.

Yesterday on the toilet I felt a little tickle and had a quick feel. Didn't feel anything.

Felt it again just now and I can feel the wires, just the tip. Have had sex (a few days ago) and dp dint mention he felt it.

No pain or bleeding though.

Is this normal?

you are supposed to check for the wires regularly to see if it is still in place. The wires are also what they use to remove the coil when required

So its normal for me to be able to feel them? I think I'll go and get checked on tuesday anyway.

you are supposed to be able to feel them with your fingers. Do you mean you are feeling them prior to checking with your fingers?

I had a feel after it was put in and didnt fell anything. Now I keep getting a weird tickling feeling from the wires amd I can touch the tip of them.
