What is Mirena?
Birth control for busy moms
Mirena is an intrauterine device (IUD) that’s over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. It’s made of soft, flexible plastic and placed into your uterus by your healthcare provider during a routine office visit.
Mirena releases small amounts of hormone directly into the uterus and lasts as long as YOU want, for up to 5 years.
It is important to note that Mirena is recommended for women who have had a child. Mirena does not protect against HIV or STDs.
