Wait, can you feel the bottom of the coil at all? Or are the strings just really long?

My strings feel like wire, have you felt your strings before?

my strings feel like tiny wire too, apparently they soften over time. You could nip to the family planning clinic and get them to check it

Wires/strings - prob the same thing.

If you can't feel the strings, don't worry. Apparently they 'hide' round the top of the cervix. My GP told me they've stopped telling people to bother feeling for the strings because of this and just assume it's fine as long as nothing falls out.
