Lawyers Reviewing Lawsuits for Mirena IUD Problems
The product liability lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are reviewing potential lawsuits for women who have experienced serious and debilitating problems from Mirena birth control.
Side effects of Mirena IUD may cause the implanted birth control device to move inside the body, potentially resulting in:
- Perforation of the Uterine Wall
- Migration of the IUD to Outside the Uterus
- Expulsion of the Mirena IUD
- Complications that Result in Surgery to Remove Mirena IUD
Financial compensation may be available through a Mirena lawsuit for individuals who have experienced problems resulting in surgery or the need for medical treatment. To review a potential case for yourself, a friend or family member, request a free legal consultation.
MIRENA IUD PROBLEMS
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 overaies from releasing eggs.
Although Mirena has been promoted as a safe and reversible form of birth control, which can prevent pregnancy for up to five years, hundreds of women throughout the United States have filed product liability lawsuits alleging that the IUD carries an unreasonable risk of problems, such as spontaneous migration and uterine perforation.
Mirena IUD Lawyers
The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk are evaluating potential lawsuits over Mirena for women throughout the United States who have experienced problems.
According to allegations raised in these IUD lawsuits, Bayer knew or should have known about the risk of these Mirena problems, yet failed to provide adequate warnings for women or the medical community.
While withholding important information about the risk of devastating complications, Bayer aggressively promoted Mirena IUD systems as a hassle free form of birth control, negligently and recklessly making false and misleading representations about the safety of the device.
Bayer has faced criticism for many of their marketing campaigns. One such marketing effort, known as “Mirena Simple Style”, which was targeted to “busy moms” suggested that Mirena would increase the level of intimacy, romance and emotional satisfaction for women, despite known reports during clinical trials that at least 5% of participants experienced decreased libido after use. The marketing for Mirena also suggested that the IUD would help women “look and feel great”, despite known side effects such as weight gain, acne, breast pain and tenderness.
Making false and misleading promotional statements, while withholding information about the risk of uterus perforation, migration and other debilitating problems, unnecessarily exposed women to a risk of injury without providing them the opportunity to decide whether the benefits of a long-term, reversible birth control justify the danger.
