Why The Mirena ?
Mirena is a small T-shaped device made of plastic. It works by delivering a very small amount of a progestin (20 mcg of levonorgestrel) directly on the inner wall of the uterus. This dose is approximately the same dose as taking two or three mini-pills a week. The Mirena IUD works by blocking fertilized eggs from implanting on the uterus, or by creating a mild inflammation which prevents sperm from fertilizing eggs. A Mirena IUD, which contains the hormone progesterone, lasts five years; the copper ParaGard IUD lasts 10 years and the Nexplanon (formerly Implanon) implant, which contains progesterone, lasts three. The hormones stay in the uterus and are not systemic, meaning they do not go to other parts of your body. The Mirena has also been approved for shortening , lightening, or even eliminating periods altogether while you use it.
The small amounts of levonorgestrel released by Mirena make your cervical mucus thick and tacky so sperm can’t swim through it. If the sperm gets in, then they can’t make it to the egg to fertilize it. It promotes the production of white blood cells and when a foreign object is placed inside the uterus, your body creates these white blood cells to defend itself. So when you have sex, if sperm does make it through your tacky mucus to your uterus, the white blood cells will attack them.
Uterine Perforation is the most serious complication of the Mirena
The Mirena IUD is migrating from the insertion position getting stuck ( embedded ) in and puncturing (perforating) the uterus. The IUD must be surgically removed if the uterus has been perforated.
