Mirena® - the Levonorgestrel Intrauterine System: The New Contraceptive Option for Parous Women
Elof D. Johansson
Parthenon Publishing Group, 1998 - Medical - 85 pages
This is the first clinical reference text on Mirena(TM) - the levonorgestrel intrauterine system (IUS) that has achieved great success in the UK and Scandinavia since its first commercial release in Finland in 1990. Considered to be a new paradigm in contraception, Mirena(TM) offers very high and comfortable contraceptive efficacy with reduced menstrual pain and blood loss and minimal side effects. Mirena(TM) is said to offer an excellent contraceptive choice for modern women, fitting in well with an active professional life, free choice of sport activities, and a spontaneous sex life. The book contains five authoritatively written chapters on 21st century contraception, effects of the levonorgestrel intrauterine system on the endometrium, menstrual bleeding pattern, perimenopausal contraception, and the safety profile of Mirena(TM) based on long-term experience. Includes bibliographic references and index. Publication Note: This volume is the proceedings of a symposium held at the XV FIGO World Congress of Gynecology and Obstetrics, Copenhagen, August, 1997.
