|Mirena 20ug/24h x 1||
Mirena is a small and flexible intrauterine device that is used to avoid pregnancy for up to five years. Mirena IUD functions by gradually discharging a hormone called levonorgestrel. This intrauterine device is used in women who want long-term and reversible birth control through IUD. Mirena birth control is only meant to be used by women who have given birth earlier, are monogamous, have not been distressed by any sexually-linked infections or do not have a history of specific problem pregnancy or ectopic pregnancy. Mirena IUD comprises of a T-shaped polyethylene structure with a steroid pool present in its vertical stem. This Mirena birth control reservoir comprises of a white tube prepared with a blend of levonorgestrel and silicone. The pool is covered by a translucent silicone membrane that holds a total of 52 mg levonorgestrel. The T-structure of Mirena IUD is 32 mm horizontally as well as vertically and a single-strand brown polyethylene removal thread is fastened to a loop at the end of the vertical stem of the T-shaped structure.
Levonorgestrel contained in the Mirena IUD is basically a progestogen that is used in a number of birth control products. Small measures of levonorgestrel may be placed into the uterine cavity with the help of the Mirena intrauterine device delivery method. In the beginning, 20g of levonorgestrel is discharged daily and this rate gradually reduces to around 10g after five years. Mirena IUD primarily has local progestrenic consequences in the uterine cavity and ovulation is slowed down in some women using Mirena. While the local method by which constantly released levonorgestrel augments the effectiveness of Mirena birth control has not been decisively revealed, researches of Mirena samples have put forward several systems that prevent pregnancy. The Mirena birth control methods include condensation of cervical mucus thwarting the way of sperm into the uterus, inhibition of sperm survival, and alteration of the endometrium. Mirena is a highly effective method of birth control and has been widely used alone or with other contraceptive methods such as condoms. Like all methods of birth control Mirena is not a 100% guaranteed method of birth control.
The Mirena IUD is always inserted into a womans uterus by a trained healthcare provider after every five years or some times as per the recommendations of the physician. This intrauterine device gradually releases levonorgestrel inside the body for five years and if any woman does not want pregnancy even after five years, the IUD is replaced by another Mirena birth control device. Mirena is inserted into the uterine cavity within seven days of the beginning of menstruation or directly after first trimester abortion by carefully going through the insertion instructions. It can be replaced by a new Mirena IUD at any time during the menstrual cycle. It is always advisable to consult your doctor before using Mirena IUD and also if you confront Mirena problems while using the IUD.
Mirena IUD should not be used if anyone has pregnancy, believes that she is pregnant, is suffering from any uterine and vaginal problems or has been affected by AIDS or leukemia. Use of Mirena is also not recommended for women suffering from liver ailments, tumors, breast cancer, and cardiac problems as well as having a history of ectopic pregnancy. Mirena birth control should never be used if another IUD already exists. In the event of becoming pregnant while using this intrauterine device, which is a rare phenomenon, consult your physician immediately regarding the Mirena problems in such conditions. One should also not use Mirena during nursing as levonorgestrel may have adverse effects on nursing infants.
Mirena Side Effects
Using Mirena may have a number of adverse aftereffects such as vaginal bleeding, rash, acne, head ache, cramps, nausea, breast pain and even hair loss. However, it has been found that many people using this intrauterine device do not suffer from any Mirena problems or Mirena side effects. Immediately inform your physician if you endure any Mirena side effects such as fever, stomach ache, breathing problems, not having menstrual period, vaginal swelling/itching, chills, mood changes, reduced interest in sex or painful intercourse. Mirena side effects may also include abnormal vaginal release, dark urine, trouble urinating relentless abdominal/ pelvic pain, lumps in the breast, yellowing eyes or skin. Contact your pharmacist or physician if any of these or other Mirena problems occurs while using the IUD.
