MIRENA COIL - NEW DURATION OF USE
The licencing for the duration of use for Mirena Coils has changed
As of January 2024 the Mirena coil is now licenced as effective for contraception for 8 years in the UK. This change is endorsed by the Faculty of Sexual and Reproductive Healthcare. This is a change from previous recommended duration of use which was orginally 5 years, then 6 years. SWISH will now only accept bookings for Mirena coil replacement when the coil has been in place for at least 7 1/2 years.
