Mirena IUD Class Action Suit

Question:

How Do I Participate in the Class Action for Mirena IUD Birth Control Problems?

ANSWER:

A growing number of women throughout the United States have filed a lawsuit after experiencing complications with Mirena IUD, where the implanted birth control device migrated from the intended position and caused severe internal injuries. However, each claim is being handled as an individual claim, not a Mirena class action lawsuit.

REVIEW A CASE

Although the federal court system has consolidated and centralized all lawsuits for pretrial proceedings, to reduce duplicative discovery and eliminate conflicting rulings from different judges, this process is known as a “Multi-District Litigation” or MDL, and is different from a class action for Mirena, where all claims would be litigated through one class representative

The lawyers at Saiontz & Kirk, P.A. are continuing to review and evaluate potential claims for women throughout the United States.

To join the litigation and determine whether you or a family member may be entitled to financial compensation through a Mirena suit, request a free consultation and claim evaluation.

After submitting our confidential form on-line, you will be contacted to discuss the circumstances surrounding your claim. If it is determined whether we believe we can causally connect an injury suffered by yourself or a family member to the Mirena IUD, it is your decision whether to hire one of our Mirena lawyers.

Mirena IUD Class Action vs. MDL

In April 2013, the Mirena litigation was centralized in the Southern District of New York as part of an MDL, or Multidistrict Litigation. Many people confuse this with a Mirena class action, but there are important differences.

An MDL has many of the advantages commonly associated with a class action, allowing a large number of individuals to pursue a claim against a common defendant through a process that increases efficiency and lowers the costs of litigation. However, unlike a class action, each claim is evaluated based on the individual injuries suffered by the plaintiff, not through one class representative.

Each case remains an individual lawsuit, and any Mirena settlement agreement reached will be based on the circumstances for that woman, accounting for the pain and suffering caused by the IUD. In addition, when any offers are received, each client retains the right to decide whether to settle their case or proceed to trial.

Since each plaintiff must establish that their use of Mirena birth control caused the alleged injury and that the manufacturer failed to adequately warn about the risk of side effects, it is very important to have a qualified Mirena class action attorney representing your interests.

As part of the coordinated proceedings in the federal MDL, a small group of cases will be prepared for early trial dates throughout the end of 2014 and beginning of 2015, with the first trials expected to begin in late 2015. While the outcomes of these cases will not be binding in the other lawsuits, they may help gauge how juries are likely to respond to certain evidence and testimony that may be repeated throughout a number of cases.

  1. I had the mirena for almost a year. It was very painful when it was placed and I had pains in my legs while I had the iud. I also sufferd pain during intimacy. I went to my doctor and explained my concerns about the iud and had it removed. Once it was removed I had severe bleeding for almost 6 weeks and my doctor ordered a ultrasound. I found out I now have ovarian cysts. I had to go back for repeat ultrasounds every six weeks, and I continued to have another cyst each time. Since having it removed I suffer from severe cramping, which I believe to be from recurring ovarian cysts.

  2. I got inplanted the iud mirena in 2009 right after i had my baby.. After few months of having the iud i started having pain abdominal and pelvic pain… It got soo intense that i could not take the pain i had it removed few months later.. During having the iud intimate intercourse was very painful it would hurt each time i had intercourse. Then i decided to get it removed i had a great relief.. But i started to have complications lots of pelvic pain for almost 8 mths until i couldnt anymore and headed to the ER.. They found a mass in mu ovaries cyst in my ovaries.. I had to have surgery but i didnt know why i got it after.. Since the iud implantation and had it removed i have had uterine pain.. As well as in intercourse.

  3. I have been using it for years now The first time I had to change it the doctor could not get it out. I had to have in office local anesthesia to get it removed. I had new one put in but now Im having spider veins appear on my legs. I made an appointment to have it removed but I am scared it might be stuck again.The pain to remove it before was excruciating.

  4. I am one of the 1st women they implanted (in the WTC, Knysna Private Hospital) in RSA. I was &^#^ed over by the people/power behind the Marina. I have to add that I had an hysterectomy as result of a MARINA-domino-effect.

    ALSO, more importantly – I have a series of problems as result of the MARINA if wish to discuss with a doctor who does not feel the need to protect the MARINA “brand”

  5. My mirena caused me pain every couple weeks. That’s because it had become partly imbedded in my uterus. It took 3 separate visits to get it removed (the strings were also gone) and my doctor had to dig it out with a metal hook. One of the most painful things I’ve ever felt and the room looked like a crime scene when they were done. DO NOT GET THE MIRENA!

  6. I have 2 sisters that was on the Mirena Iud and this year they both lost their babies both were 2 months old when they died. My nephew died from SIDS and my niece was born with an enlarged heart and after two months at home she died from a blood clot that went from her leg to her heart. I really think this is from the Mirena.
