IUD-Paragard

I am twenty years old and have had the Paragard in for about three months.  Not to be graphic, but after intercourse it burned, this has happened a couple of times before, especially when I pee.  Right now I can feel something inside me, sounds weird, but it feels raw.  I tried feeling around for the strings, but I have short fingers and had to have my boyfriend find it for me.  He said he could feel the strings and the tip of something metal.  I'm very worried about infertility and is wondering if this could possibly lead to it?  I need to see an gynecologist asap to be checked for infection or something else.  Besides that I love the paragard.  When I first used it my boyfriend complained the first two weeks about being able to feel something, but it stopped and he hasn't complained since and my periods are a little heavier than before, but not too bad.  I hated the insertion and am scared I'm going to have to have one re-inserted because my experience was excruciating (I've never had kids).  What are your thoughts? And does anyone else have these same symptoms or side effects??

The burning and painful pee are pretty characteristic of a vaginal, bladder or yeast infection I think even some STDs come with those symptoms. I'd suggest seeing a Dr. asap and laying off of sex, tampons, swimming and baths until you know whether or not you have an infection. (I have read that baths can aggravate yeast infections, so I assume swimming can be just as bad.)

And while I'm not very versed on IUD's I do know that some infections can lead to infertility if untreated, so sooner you see a dr. the better.

Also if he can feel the tip of the IUD that means it has slipped and you may be at risk of pregnancy. You should go see your gynecologist immediately and use a back up form of birth control until you get it squared away.
