As the use of Mirena IUD birth control continues to increase, providing women with a “hassel-free” and long-acting form of reversible contraception, a growing number of women are suffering horrific and painful internal injuries when the implanted device perforates the uterus or migrates to other parts of the body.
These Mirena complications can have a devastating impact on a woman’s quality of life, causing pelvic pain, lower back pain, bleeding, infections and other problems caused if the IUD slices through internal organs.
Have You Suffered a Mirena IUD Injury?
The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. have been reviewing potential Mirena injury lawsuits for women throughout the United States, as the manufacturer appears to have failed to adequately warn about the risk of migration and perforation.
In many cases, women do not discover that there is a problem until long after the Mirena IUD was implanted, with complications often starting with abdominal pain or bleeding.
Visual imaging following these symptoms may reveal that the Mirena IUD has moved, and is not where it should be in the uterus. In some cases, women have not discovered the Mirena injury until they become pregnant because the device moved out of place in the uterus.
Women have reported that their doctors found the Mirena IUD on the wrong side of the uterus wall, even as far away as the liver. In some cases, women have discovered that their body expelled the Mirena on its own.
In addition to the pain and complications associated with perforation or migration, woman may suffer further injury during attempts to remove Mirena IUD. In some cases, it has been necessary for women to undergo a hysterectomy, potentially leading to unwanted infertility and hormal changes.
These Mirena injuries have also been linked to severe psychological effects, such as depression, anxiety and mood changes.
MIRENA INJURY LAWSUITS
It appears that Bayer knew or should have known about the risk of spontaneous migration, uterine perforation and other Mirena IUD complications, yet failed to provide adequate warnings or information for women or the medical community. As a result, financial compensation may be available for those that have experienced these problems.
