If you’ve had a conversation about Mirena with your healthcare provider and decided it is right for you, he or she can place it into your uterus during a routine office visit.
• Placement typically takes just a few minutes
• Cramps, dizziness, and/or some bleeding may occur and are common side effects
• Some discomfort can be expected. Ask your healthcare provider about over-the-counter pain medications you can take to minimize cramps
