- Mirena is more than 99% effective at preventing pregnancy
- You can try to become pregnant as soon as Mirena is removed. Within a year of having Mirena removed, about 8 out of 10 women succeed at becoming pregnant
- If you have a pelvic infection, get infections easily or have certain cancers, Mirena is not right for you
- Mirena is also proven to reduce heavy periods in women who choose intrauterine contraception
I was looking for something long term but not permanent and this seemed to be the only option I had that sounded right for me. *as long as you have the same sexual partner no other contraception is needed but if this isn't the case you may still need to buy the occasional box of condoms since this does not prevent STDs. *this is the only bith control also proven to reduce your monthly PMS *It literally is effective for 5 years straight!! Which is great for hubby and I because if we want another child then would be about the time our youngest will be in kindergarden-if not then I can get another one placed when this one gets removed! I have also thought of another great use for this birth control....High School Girls(if you get a mirena placed your senior year it would be good until you graduated and completed 4 years of college) How awesome would it be to not have to worry about something unexpected happening when you have an educational plan in place!?? Its an idea for you to ponder!
