Were you looking for information about Mirena? Merena is a common misspelling of Mirena.
Mirena® is a prescription contraceptive device designed for women who have had at least one child and who desire long-term (but easily reversible) birth control. This contraceptive device contains a hormone that helps prevent pregnancy. Your healthcare provider inserts the device into the uterus, where it can remain for up to five years. Some of the common side effects seen with Mirena include headaches, nausea, and a decreased sex drive. In addition to preventing pregnancy, Mirena is approved to treat heavy menstrual bleeding.
