Sore Breasts

I actually have 2 questions.. The first is, I had a copper IUD placed about 8 months ago, I am supposed to check for the string every month to make sure its still there. Well last time I checked I noticed that the string got a lot longer than it was last month.. Is that supposed to happen???
My second question is, My breasts are really sore. This happens sometimes with me when im about to start my period but im not due to start for another week and a half?? I dont think im pregnant cause my last period was on August 3rd and I have an IUD. Why would my breasts be so sore when its not time for my period?????

If your IUD is not in place properly hence the string is lower down then usual then it may not be doing it's job and can therefore mean you may very well be able to fall pregnant. Do a test or go to a dr to get one done. If you have fallen pregnant then perhaps the IUD is dislodging as a result. I don't know for sure as I've never had one but I'm just trying to think what could be going on. Either way see your dr as soon as you can because if you are pregnant and the IUD is still in tact in some way it could cause serious complications for you and the pregnancy.
