Were you looking for information about Mirena? Marena is a common misspelling of Mirena.
Mirena® is licensed to help prevent pregnancy by stopping ovulation, altering the cervical mucus, and/or changing the lining of the uterus. It is also approved to treat heavy menstrual bleeding. This form of contraceptive is a small, flexible plastic device that is inserted into your uterus for up to five years at a time. Although most women tolerate Mirena well, it is not suitable for everyone. Prior to using this contraceptive device, make sure to talk to your healthcare provider about your medical history and any other medicines you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
