That long?🙄🙄😲: Mireya is a IUCD or IUD that is effective up to five (5) years!!! This is a foreign body that can only be justifiably kept in your uterus as long as you derive a benefit from its presence. Otherwise it should have been removed fifteen (15) years ago . Please ask your doctor to remove it asap.
