How do you know if you lose the Mirena?<br>
I check to see if the mirena is still intact, but I cant find the string. Would you know it if you lost blood in the middle of the month maybe?. Would the mirena string disappear for periods of time? I am a bit worried as I have sore breasts that I never do have. We do not want any more children as our family is now complete

The Mirena can be pulled up at different stages of the cycle. However, if you cannot feel the strings you should see your doctor to check that it is still in place.
