This product is a small, flexible device inserted into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. It offers a long-term reversible birth control option, with some variants lasting up to 5 or 8 years, depending on the specific product. This device can also manage heavy menstrual bleeding in individuals opting for this form of birth control. The device gradually releases a hormone called levonorgestrel, akin to one naturally produced by women, aiding in pregnancy prevention.

Uses and Dosage

This device is inserted into the uterus by a healthcare provider during an office visit.

A follow-up appointment is typically scheduled 4 to 6 weeks later to ensure it remains properly positioned. Depending on the specific product, it remains in place for up to 5 or 8 years.

Your doctor may advise using a backup form of birth control for the first 7 days after insertion to prevent pregnancy until the device becomes effective.

Occasionally, the device may shift or expel itself. Check its position after each menstrual period. Your healthcare provider or the Patient Information Leaflet can instruct you on how to perform these checks. If the device comes out or you can’t feel its threads, contact your doctor promptly and use a backup non-hormonal form of birth control (such as condoms or spermicide) until advised otherwise.

If you wish to continue using this method of birth control after 5 years (or 8 years with certain products), the current device may be removed and replaced with a new one. Regardless, the device should be removed after the specified time period. Your healthcare provider can remove the device whenever you decide to stop using it.

Does Mirena IUD stop periods?

Mirena IUD can stop your menstrual periods, though it typically happens later on during treatment. When you first start Mirena IUD, you’re more likely to experience spotting or breakthrough bleeding, especially within the first 3 to 6 months.

Does Mirena IUD cause weight gain?

While not common, some people reported weight gain while using Mirena IUD. Research suggests that the progestin hormone causes your body to hold onto more water, which might make you feel bloated.
