 Description:-"Mirena ius device is used in contraception. Levonorgestrel as an immediate contraceptive measure is thought to work by: Stopping ovaries from releasing an egg. Preventing sperm from fertilizing any egg that may have already released. Stopping a fertilized egg from attaching itself to womb lining. As a T-shaped intrauterine delivery system, after placement inside the womb, small amount of the hormone levonorgestrel reduces the monthly growth of the lining of the womb and thickens the cervical mucus which prevents contact and fertilization of an egg by sperm."
