What to Expect at Placement

Your doctor can place Mirena during an office visitIf 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 and is common. Ask your healthcare provider about over-the-counter pain medications you can take to minimize cramps

Let your healthcare provider know if your side effects are severe or last more than 30 minutes as Mirena may not have been properly placed
