Mirena is a type of hormonal IUD (Intrauterine Device) contraception that is easily inserted into the uterus through the cervix. It is a small T-shaped plastic device with a string attached to the base, and the hormone levonorgestrel in the stem. This hormone thickens the mucus at the neck of the uterus, blocking the sperm to get into uterus. It can stay in for up to 5 years and is one of the most effective ways at preventing pregnancy.
It can also be used to control heavy or painful periods. Mirena can be inserted at Vitality Healthcare Medical Centre by Dr Lay Cheng Sia. Please request a Mirena consult at the time of booking.
