Do you ever notice a change in I.U.D strings?

I had my second i.u.d placed in January and everything has been good, I have very light bleeding every 5 to 7 weeks. the last few months I have noticed all the regular hormonal period stuff (breakouts, tender breasts, ect) more than normal. my period is due soon and I went to check my i.u.d strings and they seem very long (my doctor left them a bit longer because it is more comfortable for my husband) and I had a much easier time reaching my cervix than normal, I did not fell the i.u.d itself just the strings. Is this something I should be worried about or does your cervix change with menstruation?
