Mirena Coil

Mirena guidelines have changed.

  • If you are under 45 years the Mirena can be used for contraception for 6 years.
  • If it was fitted over age 45 it can be used for contraception until age 55 years.
  • If you use it for HRT at any age it must be replaced after 5 years.
  • If we have inserted it you should get a recall for removal/replacement.

Please let us know if you do not get a recall or if you have any questions.
