Were you looking for information about Mirena? Merina is a common misspelling of Mirena.
By stopping ovulation, altering the cervical mucus, and changing the lining of the uterus, Mirena® can prevent pregnancy. This form of contraception comes in the form of a small, flexible plastic device that is inserted into the uterus and left there for up to five years. In most cases, women tolerate the device well. However, this contraceptive device is not suitable for everyone. Make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other medical conditions you have, as well as any other medications you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements) before using Mirena.
