How do I apply for the Mirena patient assistance program?
Applying for the Mirena patient assistance program through NiceRx is simple. Begin by completing the enrollment application on our website. We will ask for details about your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers that supply your medication. We may be able to help you access patient assistance for other medications as well as Mirena, so please tell us about any medications that you have been prescribed.
If we determine that you may be eligible for Mirena assistance, we will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. We will work with your healthcare provider to prepare and submit all the documents required for you to enroll. If you are successfully enrolled in the Mirena patient assistance program, we will also automatically request your Mirena medication refills for up to 1 year. At the end of your enrollment period, we will contact you for updated details and seek to re-enroll you in the program.

How much is Mirena with insurance?
Your individual healthcare plan will determine the cost of Mirena with insurance. To find out what you will need to pay, contact your pharmacist or insurance provider. They will be able to calculate your copay with your current insurance.
How much does Mirena cost without insurance?
Mirena prices without insurance will vary by retailer. As a guide, 1 Mirena intrauterine device 52 mg will typically cost around $1,053.
What is Mirena?
Mirena contains the prescription medicine levonorgestrel. Mirena is used for birth control to prevent pregnancy for up to 6 years and also to treat heavy menstrual bleeding for up to 5 years. Levonorgestrel is a synthetic progestin hormone and does not contain estrogen.
The Mirena IUD is inserted through the vagina and placed into the uterus by a doctor. The device is usually inserted within 7 days after the start of a menstrual period. The Mirena IUD device releases levonorgestrel into the uterus, causing changes in your cervix and uterus.
Mirena may be used alone or with other medications, but should not be used as an emergency contraceptive.
Mirena active ingredients
How exactly Mirena and its release of levonorgestrel (LNG) within the uterus has a contraceptive effect has not been shown clearly. It is thought that Mirena and similar LNG products have several methods of action. These include:
- thickening of the mucus in the cervix, which makes it more difficult for the sperm to pass into the uterus
- preventing sperm from maturing into sperm that are able to fertilize an egg
- making it more difficult for the sperm to survive in the uterus
- to alter the lining of the uterus wall (endometrium)
Mirena side effects
The most common side effects caused by Mirena include:
- pelvic pain
- ovarian cysts
- vaginal itching or infection
- missed or irregular menstrual periods (especially during the first 3 to 6 months)
- temporary pain, bleeding, or dizziness during insertion of the IUD
- stomach pain, nausea, vomiting, bloating
- headache, migraine
- depression, mood changes
- back pain
- breast tenderness or pain
- increase in weight
- changes in hair growth
- loss of interest in sex
- puffiness in your face, hands, ankles, or feet
In rare instances, Mirena can cause more serious side effects. These can include:
- pain during sexual intercourse
- severe cramps
- severe headaches and migraine
- severely dizzy or lightheaded
- confusion, vision problems, sensitivity to light
- heavy vaginal bleeding, vaginal sores, unusual vaginal discharge
- pale skin, weakness, easily bruised or bleeding, fever, chills, or other signs of infection
- yellowing of the skin or eyes
- sudden numbness or weakness (especially down one side of the body)
Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Mirena against your risk of side effects.
Mirena drug interactions
Mirena can interact with other medications which can affect your blood levels of levonorgestrel and make this form of birth control less effective. These include:
- Antivirals – amprenavir, boceprevir, fosamprenavir, telaprevir
- Anticancer treatment – brigatinib, dabrafenib, encorafenib, pexidartinib
- Anticonvulsants – carbamazepine, phenobarbital, phenytoin, felbamate
- etretinate – for the treatment of severe psoriasis
- St johns wort
This list is not exhaustive and other drugs may interact with Mirena.
