I have my Mirena now for 4 years. I am 54.Next year I have it removed. I have experienced 1 short and light period in those 4 years. I was wondering if I have to wait for a peroid of time before I have it repalced. I choose to have the mirena for menopausal reasons such as extremely heavy flow. Sherry
Mirena must be removed after 5 years. If you want to continue using Mirena after those 5 years, you can choose to have another one placed. Talk with your healthcare provider about replacing your Mirena before your scheduled appointment to have your current Mirena removed. He or she can then place your new Mirena during the same office visit.
