So, starting shortly after Christmas, Batman started complaining that my IUD string was "scraping" against him. He hadn't really complained about it up until that point, but for some reason or another, the string started to get irritating when we DTD. So like a good wife (who wanted to continue DTD with regularity), at my annual I had my doc take a look and he clipped the strings a bit (a lot) and all seemed right with the world.
Or so I thought.
Since said clipping, Batman has been "poked" pretty much every. time. Which means a couple of things- 1) there hasn't been as much lovin' going on and 2) when lovin' does take place, it ain't pretty... well, for Batman anyway.
So I set up an appt today to see what can be done (which btw is with another doc in the practice- mine didn't have an opening until April 15th). I'm not sure they can really clip the strings any shorter since they are already "all up in there" anyway. I can't imagine they want to clip them short enough to where they'd have to "dig" for them. Right?
If only I could convince Batman that we should just take the damn thing out! I mean, what's 10 days of unprotected TTC *ahem* I mean DTD, when we have a very low success rate of getting preggo in the last 6 years without any BC? Right? Right?
Anyway. I'll keep you posted. Hopefully, my nether regions and Batman's can come to a mutual understanding (a few times) before he leaves next week.
