What is Mirena IUD? This is a small, flexible, plastic device in a “T” shape. It is placed in the uterus, for uninterrupted birth control lasting five years. Mirena is not available over the counter; it must be placed by a physician or other qualified health care provider.
Mirena is a multifaceted approach to birth control. This one simple device works in several ways to help prevent ****. Similar to contraceptive patches, it continuously releases a low level of levonorgestrel, which mimics a naturally occurring hormone. It may also cause the lining of the uterus to become thinner and the cervical mucus thicker. The presence of an IUD also inhibits the movement of sperm toward the egg, reducing chances of fertilization.
