Want safe and effective birth control you don't have to think about taking every day, every week or even every year?
That's Mirena® (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system). All you have to do is check the threads of Mirena once a month. Your health care provider can show you how. If you have trouble finding the threads, be sure to use a backup form of birth control and call your health care provider.
Mirena is made of soft, flexible plastic that's put in place by your health care provider during an office visit.
No birth control is right for everyone and there are certain risks associated with Mirena that you should know about. For detailed information about possible side effects, some potentially serious, please see Safety with Mirena
* A woman's chances of getting pregnant within 12 months of having Mirena removed are approximately 80%.
