Mirena
(levonorgestrel-releasing) Intrauterine System
DRUG DESCRIPTION



What are the possible side effects of levonorgestrel intrauterine system (Mirena)?

The levonorgestrel intrauterine device may become embedded into the wall of the uterus, or may perforate (form a hole) in the uterus. If this occurs, the device may no longer prevent pregnancy, or it may move outside the uterus and cause...

Mirena is intended to provide an initial release rate of 20
mcg/day of levonorgestrel
Levonorgestrel USP,
(-)-13-Ethyl-17-hydroxy-18,19-dinor-17α-pregn-4-en-20-yn-3-one, the active
ingredient in Mirena, has a molecular weight of 312.4, a molecular formula of C21H28O2,
and the following structural formula:








Mirena
Mirena (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system)
consists of a T-shaped polyethylene frame (T-body) with a steroid reservoir
(hormone elastomer core) around the vertical stem. The reservoir consists of a
white or almost white cylinder, made of a mixture of levonorgestrel and silicone
(polydimethylsiloxane), containing a total of 52 mg levonorgestrel. The
reservoir is covered by a semi-opaque silicone (polydimethylsiloxane) membrane.
The T-body is 32 mm in both the horizontal and vertical directions. The
polyethylene of the T-body is compounded with barium sulfate, which makes it
radiopaque. A monofilament brown polyethylene removal thread is attached to a
loop at the end of the vertical stem of the T-body.

Inserter
Mirena is packaged sterile within an inserter. The inserter, which is used
for insertion of Mirena into the uterine cavity, consists of a symmetric two-sided
body and slider that are integrated with flange, lock, pre-bent insertion tube
and plunger. Once Mirena is in place, the inserter is discarded.
