Mirena is an IUD (intra-uterine device) that was approved by the FDA in 2000. Manufactured by Bayer, Mirena is intended to prevent unwanted pregnancies for up to five years following implantation. To date, more than two million women have received Mirena IUDs.
Mirena is shaped like a T with two “strings” that hang outside of the uterus. These strings serve the dual purpose of helping ensure proper placement and, when it’s time, device removal. Migration occurs when the IUD slips out of its ideal placement. Often “lost strings” is the first warning sign of migration. Sadly, once Mirena IUD migrates, it can lead to serious and life-threatening complications such as uterine perforation and migration into the abdominal cavity.
