Mirena: What is it?
Mirena is an FDA-approved intrauterine contraceptive system (also known as an IUD*)
It’s a small, T-shaped device that is placed into the uterus by a trained healthcare provider during a routine office visit. It provides continuous, birth control.
Keep in mind that no birth control is 100% effective.
Mirena is a hormone-releasing IUD that releases small amounts of a progestin hormone called levonorgestrel locally into the uterus. Mirena lasts for up to 5 years.
What are your thoughts about the Mirena?
I just had a client tell me her experiences of having the marina in, including vaginal dryness, skin sensitivity and recurrent episodes of thrush. It was not a great experience for her.
But she surprised me when she told me that she had taken it out herself!
My reaction was a mix of OMG and Respect 🙂
