It is a device inserted into the uterus and can remain in place for up to 5 years. Unlike the Para Guard IUD, Mirena contains the hormone progesterone. The IUD can be removed at any time before its 5 year limit if the patient desires to become pregnant. The IUD is inserted by a healthcare professional during a woman’s menstrual period. In order to be eligible for an IUD, you must have a medical exam, including your medical history, internal examination, Pap Smear, cervical and vaginal cultures. It is 99% effective.
