Hormonal Intrauterine Systems for perimenopause and menopause symptoms have become popular as effective hormone replacement therapy treatments.
The Mirena coil is a gentle option to treat the symptoms of perimenopause as part of hormone replacement therapy and act as a contraceptive. The Mirena IUS slowly and constantly releases progesterone into the womb to treat some symptoms of perimenopausal and PMS such as heavy bleeding. The Mirena IUS can also be used alongside an oestrogen based HRT to protect the endometrium.
This hormonal IUS is a small, T-shaped piece of flexible plastic that is inserted through the vagina and into the uterus. Once inserted, the Mirena IUS can stay in the uterus for 5 for years, effectively preventing pregnancy without impacting future fertility and alleviate symptoms of PMS. Because the IUS is fitted into the uterus for 5 years it is low-maintenance and other than requiring intermittent checks, can be forgotten about. It is not well known that perimenopausal women have the second-highest rate of unintended pregnancy and the Mirena IUS helps to prevent any unplanned pregnancies.
The slow-released hormonal IUS also helps to make periods lighter, reduce cramps and have few or no side effects. For these reasons, hormonal intrauterine systems for perimenopause symptoms are a beneficial solution.
Hormonal intrauterine systems are a more gentle way of delivering progesterone to the body. As they are long-lasting and inserted into the body, they leave little room for human error and are far easier to maintain compared to taking contraceptive pills at the same time each day. The hormonal IUS relieves symptoms of perimenopause and PMS and reduced the risk of unplanned pregnancies. The Mirena will be safely inserted by your doctor and you are invited to have a follow-up appointment to ensure the placement of the Mirena IUS is secure if you are to ever feel unsure about it.
The treatment involves inserting the Mirena Coil through the vagina to the uterus. Your doctor will do this in a sterile environment, the treatment only takes 5-10 minutes. You may feel some cramps after the insertion of the Mirena IUS but these will subside.
You will only need one treatment to insert the Mirena IUS. You are welcome to have a follow-up appointment to ensure the Mirena is correctly placed or not displaced. After insertion, you do not have to do anything more until the device expires after 5 years when it needs to be removed and replaced.
The Mirena IUS is effective immediately if inserted at the time of your menstrual period or after 7 days if insertions occurs at any other time of your cycle. Please use other forms of protection in this 7 day period if you are using the Mirena as a contraceptive.
