Mirena may be right for you if you are looking for birth control that is:
Highly Effective—One of the most effective birth control methods—over 99%—and does not rely on you to be effective
Convenient—No daily pills and no monthly refills. It lasts as long as you want, for up to 5 years. The timeframe is up to you. You should do a monthly self-check to make sure it’s in place. Ask your healthcare provider to explain how
Reversible—You can have it removed by your healthcare provider at any time, and try to become pregnant right away
Estrogen-free—It delivers small amounts of progestin locally into your uterus
Approved to treat heavy periods—Mirena is the first and only birth control that is FDA-approved to treat heavy periods in women who choose intrauterine birth control
Do not use Mirena if you have a pelvic infection, get infections easily, or have certain cancers.
