|It's harder to find by u/s so if they can't find it with that method, it doesn't necessarily mean that you have expelled it.|

As I remember before I had mine inserted- I was inspecting it-- the strings were sort of wirey. Not actual string-- more rigid. Hence the fact that they can 'poke' some dh's during the during sex.
Mine is Mirena- maybe the copper ones are different.
