Mirana

Were you looking for information about Mirena? Mirana is a common misspelling of Mirena.
Mirena® is an intrauterine contraceptive that prevents pregnancy by slowly releasing a certain hormone. The product is placed into the uterus within seven days after your period starts and is effective at preventing pregnancy for up to five years. This device also works by stopping ovulation (in some women) and altering the lining of the uterus and cervical mucus.
The product is designed for women who have had at least one child and are looking for long-term birth control. Before having this intrauterine device inserted, be sure to tell your healthcare provider about any medications you are taking and any medical conditions you may have. Potential side effects of this product include nausea, headaches, and a decreased sex drive.
