It is true that men can sometimes feel the thread of the device during intercourse, but it should not be uncomfortable - so it would be neccessary to check that the device is properly in place as if it were to be low down in the canal of the cervix then he may feel the tip of the plastic device itself and it would then need to be re-inserted.
The thread of the Mirena is soft and should not be a problem and has not been known to 'ruin one's sex life'. It is a very safe contraceptive.
