What uterine dimensions are required to accommodate a Mirena IUD?

Abnormality. Unless a woman has a uterine abnormality, any woman's uterus will accommodate a Mirena IUD. Fibroids groing into the uterine cavity can sometimes preclude placement of an IUD. These can be detected on pelvic ultrasound.
