- MIRENA COIL UPDATE
On the 10th Jan 2024, the FSRH (Faculty for Sexual and Reproductive Health) released a statement stating that The Mirena® coil
52mg LNG-IUD has now been licensed for 8 years for contraception use. The United Kingdom Medicines Health Regulatory Authority (MHRA) has approved an extension to the Mirena licence from 5 years to 8 years for contraception.
There has NOT been an extension to the licensed duration of use when being used for the management of heavy menstrual bleeding, or for endometrial protection as part of hormone replacement therapy (HRT).
How does this affect practice?
Users of the Mirena 52mg LNG-IUD can now be advised that the device can be used as contraception for 8 years. This also applies to individuals who already have a device in-situ.
There are no changes to the established FSRH and British Menopause Society recommended duration of use when a Mirena 52mg LNG-IUD is being used for endometrial protection as part of HRT (5 years from time of insertion) or to existing guidance about duration of use of Mirena for heavy menstrual bleeding.
Please book an appointment if you wish to discuss this further.
