Were you looking for information about Mirena? Mairena is a common misspelling of Mirena.
Mirena®, a type of intrauterine contraceptive device, works to prevent pregnancy by slowly releasing a hormone for up to five years. The medication works by stopping ovulation, changing the cervical mucus, and/or altering the lining of the uterus. Most women tolerate the device well. However, Mirena is not suitable for everyone. Before using this form of contraception, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medications you are taking (including supplements and vitamins), as well as any medical conditions you have. Possible side effects of Mirena include headaches, nausea, and a decreased sex drive.
