Were you looking for information about Mirena? Maryna is a common misspelling of Mirena.
Mirena® is a type of birth control designed for women who desire long-term contraception that is easily reversible and who have had at least one child. Mirena is also approved to treat heavy menstrual bleeding. This form of birth control comes in the form of a small, flexible plastic device that is inserted into the uterus. It works by slowly releasing a certain hormone for up to five years. This hormone inhibits ovulation, changes the cervical mucus, and alters the lining of the uterus. Possible side effects include nausea, headaches, and a decreased sex drive.
