Experience

Make sure your doctor knows to how insert it, that the strings are long enough, and does an ultrasound follow up. My IUD was inserted wrong bc my uterus is misshapen. It was still effective but I had to have it removed bc of the potential risks. Also, the strings were too short so my partner felt them stabbing him when we were having sex sometimes. If my doctor had done an ultrasound after it settled, I think timing is normally 6 weeks, then they would have known it was sitting right and removed it.
