Were you looking for information about Mirena? Merenia is a common misspelling of Mirena.
Mirena® is an intrauterine device used for long-term birth control. It is designed for women who have had at least one child and who desire long-term (but easily reversible) birth control. It is also approved to treat heavy menstrual bleeding. A healthcare provider inserts the device into your uterus, where it slowly releases a hormone that prevents pregnancy for up to five years. Although most women tolerate the device well, it is not suitable for everyone. Prior to using Mirena, make sure to tell your healthcare provider about any other medical conditions you may have, as well as any other medications you are taking.
