Mirena is a flexible T-shaped intrauterine contraceptive device that is inserted by a woman’s healthcare provider to prevent pregnancy. It is recommended for women who already have children and is meant to prevent pregnancy for up to five years. The device has been a hit in the U.S. because of its convenience.
The Law Office of Melinda J. Helbock says it is sponsoring MirenaIUDLawyer.org because it wants to help women learn about the potential risks associated with the device.
