Get to know the details on Mirena

  • Small and T-shaped
  • Made of soft, flexible plastic
  • Placed in your uterus by a healthcare provider who can remove it at any time in case your plans change
  • Can be used whether or not you’ve had a baby

You may experience pain, bleeding or dizziness during and after placement. If your symptoms do not pass within 30 minutes after placement, Mirena may not have been placed correctly. Your healthcare provider will examine you to see if Mirena needs to be removed or replaced.
