Hormonal Treatment

MIRENA intrauterine device

Mirena coil consists of a small, soft, flexible plastic T-shaped frame which is inserted into the uterus. This carries the hormone in a sleeve around its stem, and has two fine threads attached to the base to help with removal. 

Mirena Insertion only takes a couple of minutes and can be done as an “in rooms procedure” in some instances or as a simple, quick day procedure at our practice.

At 3-6 months the average length of the period is 1-2 days. Many women have frequent spotting or light bleeding in addition to their period for the first 3-6 months after the system is fitted.It is effective for up to 5 years.
