WHAT IS MIRENA IUD?
The Mirena IUD, a birth control device that is inserted into the uterus through the vagina, has been identified as a possible cause of uterine wall perforations, pelvic inflammatory disease, sepsis, and other dangerous conditions. The product information for the Mirena IUD also indicates that, if a woman becomes pregnant when using the device, her offspring might be at risk of sustaining Mirena IUD birth defects.
WHAT ARE THE PROBLEMS ASSOCIATED WITH MIRENA IUD?
Risks more commonly associated with using the Mirena IUD include headaches, pelvic pain, breast tenderness, ovarian cysts, irregular bleeding or spotting and vaginitis. Side effects should be immediately evaluated by a doctor because complications can cause serious injuries and be life-threatening.
Serious side effects include:
• perforation of the uterus
• ectopic pregnancy
• pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
• streptococcal sepsis
MIRENA IUD SETTLEMENTS AND MIRENA IUD LAWSUITS
Because Mirena IUD lawsuits are currently in the early stages, there are currently no reports yet of settlements. However, there are lawsuits in several states in which plaintiffs are seeking compensation for their injuries such as New Jersey Ohio and South Carolina. Recently, a Multi-District Litigation for Mirena IUD was formed in the Southern District of New York for all federal court cases to be consolidated in.
Our firm is currently helping women throughout the United States who have suffered side effects involving a perforated uterus while using this IUD contraceptive and helping families and individuals who have suffered permanent injuries in filing a Mirena lawsuit.
