Mirena

Mirena is an intrauterine (IUD) contraceptive that delivers small amounts of hormone directly to the uterus. Made of soft, flexible plastic, it is put in place by your healthcare provider during an office visit. Mirena is birth control that lasts as long as you want, for up to 5 years, and is also approved to treat heavy periods in women who choose intrauterine contraception. Mirena works continuously, without having to take a pill.

Dr. Marden will discuss the pros and cons of this option with you so that you can determine the best birth control method for your situation.
