More Information on Mirena

Mirena was approved by the FDA in 2000 as a contraceptive device that lasts up to five years and should be used in women who have had at least one child. It is a t-shaped device that is inserted into the uterus by a trained health care provider. Mirena releases low doses of levonorgestrel into the uterus which prevents sperm from reaching the egg by thinning the lining of the uterus, and thickening cervical mucus to prevent sperm from entering the uterus.

Mirena is manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The FDA sent a warning letter to Bayer indicating that their consumer-directed program misbrands the drug and “overstates the efficacy of Mirena, presents unsubstantiated claims, minimizes the risks of using Mirena, and includes false or misleading presentations regarding Mirena.”
