This is embarrassing, I just went to the bathroom, I take meds that cause constipation. So, needless to say, using the toilet can be a task. When I was done, it felt like there was something in my vagina. I thought maybe I pushed my IUD out so I checked when I got in the shower. I felt the strings but I also felt a cone shaped object at the very top of my vagina. I can still feel it, it's like having a tampon in. I know this wasn't there before, I check my strings once a month. Any ideas? Thanks
Welcome to ehealthforum.
What you are feeling is probably the cervix. When you were checking for strings of IUD, you were checking it may be peripherally so you never felt it before.
If on touching it is not painful, then you can relax. However if you are in doubt, then you can get it examined by your healthcare provider/gynecologist to make sure that there is nothing abnormal (like growth in vagina).
