Looking for contraception in Brisbane? The Mirena is a hormone-releasing IUD that is over 99% effective in preventing pregnancy and can last for up to 5 years. The Mirena can be used by women who have and have not had children before and can also be used to treat heavy menstrual periods. If you've discussed your birth control options with your healthcare provider and have decided that the Mirena may be right for you, it's time to schedule an appointment with us here at Greenslopes Day Surgery.
The Mirena is a small T-shaped device that is inserted through the vagina and into the uterus. The device slowly releases the hormone progesterone directly into the uterus over a 5 year period, thickening the cervical mucus preventing sperm from reaching the egg. The lining of the uterus also changes over time, preventing an egg from implanting on the wall.
The Mirena IUD makes a great form of contraception for women who don't want to have to remember to take a pill every day. In most cases, menstrual bleeding becomes light and often can disappear completely.
The Mirena is a very affordable form of contraception in the Brisbane region, especially if you are wanting or requiring a sedation for the insertion. Thousands of dollars would be spent at a private hospital to have the Mirena inserted with an anaesthetic, but here at GSDS, the insertion can be performed at a next for nothing cost!
