Mirena is birth control you don't have to think about taking every day, every week or even every year.
Mirena (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system) works continuously, without a pill, without a daily hassle. Once Mirena is properly placed, all you have to do is check the threads 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.
With Mirena, you get effective protection and flexibility. Especially since you can have it removed as soon as you want to try to have another baby.* Any way you look at it, you're in control.
Your health care provider can generally place or remove Mirena during an office visit. He or she will check for proper placement, because if not properly placed, removal can be difficult.
* A woman's chances of getting pregnant within 12 months of having Mirena removed are approximately 80%.
