What is MIrena?

Mirena is a hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) widely used for long-term birth control and to treat heavy menstrual bleeding. It is a small, T-shaped device that, once inserted into the uterus, releases a type of progestin hormone called levonorgestrel. This hormone helps to prevent pregnancy for up to five years by thickening cervical mucus to stop sperm from reaching or fertilizing an egg and thinning the lining of the uterus.

While Mirena has been beneficial for many people, it has also been associated with several serious complications. These complications can include device migration, uterine perforation, ectopic pregnancy, and severe infection. Such side effects can cause significant pain, infertility, and other health issues.
