Mirena, is FDA approved, and it is an intrauterine contraceptive system, more commonly known as an IUD.Mirena is manufactured by Bayer. An IUD functions as a contraceptive by making the uterus produce white blood cells and prostaglandins. This makes the uterus a hostile environment for sperm. IUDs are marketed, and accepted by the medical community, as very effective and cost saving form of contraception. Mirena is different from other IUDs on the contraceptive market in that it also releases the hormone levonorgestrel into the body. Levonorgestrel’ s intended effect is to reduce the frequency of female ovulation, thereby decreasing the likelihood ofconception.The release of this hormone acts as a second guard against pregnancy. The combination of these two simultaneous methods of contraception makes the likelihood of conception a mere 1%. Mirena, and similar hormonal IUDs are also used, although to a much lesser extend to treat: Menorrhagia (heavy periods), Endometriosis, chronic pelvic pain, Adenomyosis, Dysmenorrhea, and Anemia.
The use of Mirena is marketed by extolling its many advantageous over other common forms of contraception. These include: it is effective for five years, it can be used by nursing mothers, fewer menstrual cramps, lighter periods, doesn’t commonly interact with other medications, and it is highly effective. However, there are very real dangerous associated with Mirena that you need to be aware of.
