i may have the same problem. i went to pull what i thought was just a hair that had somehow gotten up my vagina. well it broke off and the part that was still inside seemed stuck. then i started freaking out thinking it might be my iud string? thoughts?

The IUD string isn't actually a "string" it is a thin piece of wire. You would really know the difference in the IUD string from a hair.<br><br>
In the chance that the IUD string did come off your GYN/midwife can still remove the IUD with a pair of forceps. If you do think the string came off you should call your GYN/midwife ASAP to make sure the IUD doesn't travel.

IUD strings feel like thin fishing wire- and there are two.

ok i think maybe its not my string then.<br><br>
i can't have it checked right now though. no insurance, waiting list for family planning services at the health dept, and the office that actually put it in is an hour away and our car is broken. As soon as my insurance comes through i'm going to schedule an appointment though.
