Can the IUD hurt my partner?
updated over 1 year ago

The IUD shouldn't hurt your partner. You may have heard that the IUD strings can bother men while having sex, but most partners can't even feel the strings. If your partner can feel the strings, and that bothers him, your healthcare provider might be able to trim them. Plus, they usually soften over time.
