IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
- If you have a pelvic infection, get infections easily, or have certain cancers, don't use Mirena. Less than 1% of users get a serious pelvic infection called pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
- If you have persistent pelvic or stomach pain or if Mirena comes out, tell your healthcare provider (HCP). If Mirena comes out, use back-up birth control.
- Mirena may attach to or go through the uterus (perforation) and cause other problems. The risk of perforation is increased if Mirena is inserted while you are breastfeeding. Talk to your HCP.
- Pregnancy while using Mirena is uncommon but can be life threatening and may result in loss of pregnancy or fertility.
- Ovarian cysts may occur but usually disappear.
- Bleeding and spotting may increase in the first 3 to 6 months and remain irregular. Periods over time usually become shorter, lighter, or may stop.
Mirena does not protect against HIV or STDs.
Only you and your HCP can decide if Mirena is right for you. Mirena is available by prescription only.
