||Mirena® is a tiny, soft, flexible T-shaped intrauterine contraception device that is placed
in the uterus by a healthcare provider. It blocks sperm from reaching or fertilizing
an egg, and thins the lining of the uterus so an
egg cannot become implanted.
||Mirena® releases small doses of hormones over time
directly to the uterus and begins protecting
you from pregnancy for up to 5 years (or less if
you choose to have it removed). Mirena may also make your periods shorter and
lighter after one year of use.
