Were you looking for information about Mirena? Mierena is a common misspelling of Mirena.
Women who desire long-term birth control and who have had at least one child may benefit from Mirena®. This contraceptive device is inserted into the uterus, where it slowly releases a hormone that prevents pregnancy for up to five years at a time. Possible side effects of Mirena include headaches, nausea, and a decreased sex drive. As this form of contraception is not suitable for everyone, make sure your healthcare provider is aware of any other health conditions you may have. For example, you may not be able to safely use it if you have had a serious pelvic infection or an ectopic pregnancy.
