In the United States, approximately 8.5 percent of women use a long-term contraceptive device such as an intrauterine device or IUD. An IUD is a reversible method of long-term birth control that releases hormones into the body to prevent pregnancy for as long as five years. It is an alternative to oral birth control pills. One popular IUD called Mirena is an industry leader used by thousands of women across the nation.

Mirena has been linked to serious side effects. Women have made more than 45,000 complaints to the Food and Drug Administration regarding health issues caused by this birth control device. Patients have begun taking legal action against Mirena’s manufacturer, Bayer Pharmaceuticals.

The Dangers of Mirena

Mirena is a small T-shaped container made of flexible plastic that is inserted into a woman’s uterus. This container releases continuous doses of a hormone called levonorgesterel, which thickens the mucous wall in the uterus to reduce the chances of pregnancy. Unfortunately for many women, Mirena is not as effective or as safe as its manufacturers have represented.

Since its approval by the FDA in 2000, more than 45,000 adverse events have been reported by women including:

  • Expulsion of the device from the body
  • Dislocation and migration of the device within the body
  • Vaginal hemorrhaging (bleeding)
  • Ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside of the uterus)
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease or PID (infection of the ovaries, uterus lining or fallopian tubes)
  • Perforation of the uterus

Some of these complications, including ectopic pregnancy, can be life-threatening for the women using this form of birth control.

Get Help with Your Mirena IUD Lawsuit

Patients who were prescribed Mirena and suffered complications and adverse effects from this method of birth control are taking legal action against Bayer Pharmaceuticals. Injured women allege that Bayer was dishonest in its description of the benefits of Mirena, as well as in its failure to warn users about the potentially dangerous side effects. Bayer may also be responsible for a design defect in the product that causes harm to patients.

Claims against Bayer are considered defective product claims. Therefore, under the law, the manufacturer is strictly liable for any injuries caused by the defective IUD device; injured women do not need to prove that the pharmaceutical company was negligent in order to recover compensation. However, if you were injured and wish to take legal action, you need to prove a direct link between the harm you sustained and the IUD device.
