What is mirena?

Drug Name: LEVONORGESTREL - IUD
Other Brand Names: Mirena
Uses: This product is a small, flexible device that is placed in the womb (uterus) to prevent pregnancy. It is used in women who desire reversible birth control that works for a long time (up to 5 years). The device works by slowly releasing a hormone (levonorgestrel) that is similar to a certain substance made by a woman's body. This product is only intended for women who have previously given birth and have only one sexual partner. It is not meant for women with a history of certain infections/conditions (e.g., pelvic inflammatory disease, sexually transmitted disease, a certain problem pregnancy called ectopic pregnancy). For more information, consult your doctor. The use of this medication device does not protect you or your partner against sexually transmitted diseases (e.g., HIV, gonorrhea). Carefully read all of the information provided by your doctor, and ask any questions you may have about this product or other birth control methods that may be right for you.
