My OB doctor doesn't have Mirena. Do you know where can I buy one?

Mirena is available by prescription only, besides even if you purchase one, you can't place it yourself as it goes way up through the vagina and into the uterus. A lay person would not know how to do this. It takes someone who has been specially trained to do this. They sometimes have to give a paracervical block for the pain which is a numbing injection into the cervix and you also need the instruments to help you place this device. If an untrained person attempts to do this they can cause serious harm and could even kill you. You could get a perforated uterus and bleed to death. It's not like placing a tampon or something, it is a sterile, invasive procedure. If you are truly interested in having Mirena placed for birth control, and your Dr does not do this procedure, then ask him to refer you to a doctor who does do them.
