Mirena (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system) 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.
Only you and your healthcare provider can decide if Mirena is right for you. Mirena is recommended for women who have had a child.
• Bleeding and spotting may increase in the first 3 to 6 months and remain irregular. Periods over time usually become shorter, lighter or may stop.
Mirena does not protect against HIV or STDs.
Available by prescription only. Please make an appointment with Dr Naveena Sunkaraneni or Dr Svitlana Saburova to discuss your suitability for Mirena insertion.
