I check and I don't feel anything except the strings. It's just a constant cramp. I have had my IDU mirena for 3 years. It's like a burning cramp sensation, constant.

You must have dislodged the Mirena iud to be having the cramping you describe. It could be inside of the canal of your cervix. I suggest you choose to make an appointment with your gyn provider and use additional contraception until then. I hope my information has been satisfactory.
