Mirena IUD

Side Effects Could Lead To Perforation Lawsuits

The Mirena IUD (Intra-Uterine Device) was introduced by Bayer and approved by the FDA in 2000 as a long-acting form of birth control that is inserted into the uterus to disrupt the egg and sperm. The device also releases the progestin levonorgestrel, which further acts to prevent pregnancy by keeping the woman’s ovaries from releasing eggs.

Although Mirena has been promoted as a safe and reversible form of birth control women may face an unreasonable risk of problems, such as spontaneous migration and uterine perforation.

It is alleged that Bayer Inc., the maker of Mirena, used deceptive tactics to market Mirena and as a result, many women were left unaware of its potential risks and complications, some of which are very serious.

Mirena injuries can be extremely painful, and may impact the lives of victims and their families for years or more. Mirena’s complications may include uterine perforation, pelvic inflammatory disease, irregular bleeding, and amenorrhea.
