Because you're busy, you need a birth control that helps simplify your life.
Mirena is a hormone-releasing system placed in your uterus to prevent pregnancy for as long as you want for up to 5 years. Mirena also treats heavy periods in women who choose intrauterine contraception.
Mirena is a small intrauterine contraceptive made of soft, flexible plastic that is put in place by your provider during an office visit. Mirena prevents pregnancy for as long as you want, for up to 5 years. Mirena releases small amounts of the hormone levonorgestrel into your uterus. Mirena may work in several different ways, such as, thickening the cervical mucus to prevent sperm from entering your uterus, inhibit sperm from reaching or fertilizing an egg, make the lining of your uterus thin, and it may stop the release of your egg from your ovary, but this is not the way it works in most cases.
Mirena is a removable device and can be removed at any time by your provider. Because Mirena can be removed at any time by your healthcare provider, you are free to keep your family planning options open.
