Thank you for choosing Healthcaremagic. Once the course of antibiotics is over you can get this Mirena removed. And kindly make sure the whole infection is cleared before the new Mirena is inserted.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you. In case of any doubt, I will be available for follow-ups. If you like my answers kindly rate it, and write a review as well. Please do not forget to accept it.
Thank you,
Wish you good health.
