Mirena is one of the most effective birth control options.
Mirena is a type of intrauterine system, more commonly known as an IUD. But what is that, exactly?
An IUD, or intrauterine device, is a small, T-shaped device that is placed into the uterus by a trained healthcare provider during a routine office visit. It provides continuous, highly effective birth control. Keep in mind that no birth control is 100% effective.
Mirena is a hormone-releasing IUD that releases small amounts of a progestin hormone called levonorgestrel locally into the uterus. Mirena lasts for as long as you want, for up to 5 years.
