Mirena Birth Control Defects
Serving all of U.S.A
Birth control is the exercise of preventing unwanted pregnancies, usually by use of contraception. It is a practice used by many women, regardless of where they are in life, whether it be a young woman or a mother of children. One such birth control product is Mirena.
Mirena is an intrauterine device (IUD) that is advised for women who have already had a child. It is made of soft, bendable plastic and is a nonsurgical procedure. The device is inserted into the uterus through the cylindrical sterile inserter and works by gradually discharging 20 mcg of levonorgestrel into the uterus each day.
It is a highly effective form of birth control, with a 99% success rate and is also a reversible procedure. Furthermore, it can last for a long time, upwards to five years.
However, with this success, thousands of women have filed lawsuits claiming they suffered a severe and devastating Mirena IUD injury that the manufacturer did not warn about.
Examples of lawsuits being filed are:
Mirena Pseudotumor Cerebri (PTC) Lawsuits
• This condition can lead to a build up of fluid on the brain, which can result in migraines, blindness/blind spots, ringing in the ear or Papilledema (Optic Disk Swelling).
Mirena Migration Injury Lawsuits
• Women reported painful and debilitating problems when the device punctured the uterus or moved out of position, causing injury to other internal organs, which have led to infection and wounding so severe that surgery is needed to fix the problem, emergency surgery if necessary.
Although it is FDA approved, Mirena has found itself on the FDA warning website and has been subjected to safety labeling changes approved by the FDA Center for Drug Evaluation and Research as recently as October 2015.
Other Mirena (IUD) side effects include:
- Device Expulsion
- Pregnancy Complications
- Ectopic Pregnancy (which can result in infertility)
- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
As a result, many women have filed lawsuits against Bayer Pharmaceuticals (the product’s manufacturer); they are suing for:
- Punitive Damages
- Compensation for Medical Costs
- Lost Wages
- Pain and Suffering
- Misleading Advertising (that concealed the harmful side effects)
When products like Mirena prove to have serious dangers connected to them, you might start to wonder who you can trust.
