What is Mirena?

Birth control for busy moms

Mirena is an intrauterine device (IUD) that’s over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. It’s made of soft, flexible plastic and placed into your uterus by your healthcare provider during a routine office visit.

Mirena releases small amounts of hormone directly into the uterus
and lasts as long as YOU want, for up to 5 years.

It is important to note that Mirena is recommended for women who have had a child. Mirena does not protect against HIV or STDs.

Why choose Mirena?

Highly effective at preventing pregnancy, over 99%

Lasts as long as YOU want, for up to 5 years

Your healthcare provider can remove Mirena at any time,
so you can try to become pregnant right away

Within a year of having Mirena removed, about 8 out of 10 women succeed at becoming pregnant.

If you have a pelvic infection, get infections easily or have certain cancers, Mirena is not right for you.

How will Mirena affect your period?

When you choose Mirena for birth control,

Bleeding and spotting may increase in the first 3 to 6 months

Your period may remain irregular

Your periods over time usually become shorter, lighter, or may stop

Your period will return once Mirena is removed

Mirena May be Available at No Cost

Thinking about getting Mirena? Check with your health insurance to see if you can get Mirena at no cost, including product cost and your placement and removal appointments.

Based on the current healthcare law, most insurance plans are required to cover the cost of prescription birth control. For many women, this means no co-pays, deductibles, or out-of-pocket costs for birth control, including Mirena.
