Can you feel a hormonal IUD?

Once it’s fitted, the woman can’t feel the hormonal coil – not when excercising nor during sex – and neither can her partner.

The threads should be long enough –about 2-3 cm – for them to hang gently over the cervix. That way the threads can’t be felt during intercourse. If the threads are cut too short, the woman’s partner may experience a slight irritation of the sensitive skin at the end of the penis. If they are cut much too short, then they will go back into the neck of the womb, which might make them difficult to find when it comes to removal.
