If You Want to Get Pregnant

Mirena offers you the flexibility to leave your family planning options open. It lasts for up to 5 years, but the timeframe is up to you. Should you decide to try to get pregnant, Mirena can be removed at any time by your healthcare provider.

Expanding your family after Mirena

If you decide you want to try to have another child, you can have Mirena removed by your healthcare provider. There’s no waiting period for you to go through, so you can try to become pregnant right away. In fact, approximately 8 out of 10 women succeed at becoming pregnant within a year of having Mirena removed.

Leave your family planning options openRemove or replace.
It’s your choice.

If you’re still undecided about adding to your family after 5 years, you can choose to have another Mirena placed.


Just be sure to:

Let your healthcare provider know in advance. That way, he or she can remove your current Mirena and replace it with a new one at the same visit (removal, like placement, typically takes just a few minutes)

Schedule a follow-up visit 4 to 12 weeks after your new Mirena is placed to check that it’s in the right position
