What is Mirena?

Mirena Intrauterine System (IUS) contains levonorgestrel, a female hormone that can cause changes in your cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus. It is a plastic device that contains this hormone. This device is placed in the uterus where it slowly releases the hormone to prevent pregnancy for 3 to 5 years.
