Mirena IUD Problems Could Be Discovered Earlier With Better Warnings
Although the warning label for the Mirena Intrauterine Device (IUD) does include information about the potential risk of perforation, Bayer has failed to provide information that accurately reflects the risk of problems that may develop long after the birth control is inserted. As a result of this failure to warn about the risk of Mirena IUD problems, financial compensation may be available for women who have suffered an injury.
The current warnings about the risk of Mirena IUD perforating the uterus suggest that the problems are only likely occur during insertion of the device. However, Bayer has known that many women have problems that surface months or even years after insertion.
If the IUD perforates the uterine wall, Mirena may migrate or move from the intended position and cause severe internal injury and infections. In addition, in many cases these problems require surgical removal of Mirena IUD from the body, which can result in permanent injuries.
These risks are not adequately provided on the Mirena warning lable, which not only prevents women and physicians from making an informed decision about whether the benefits of the IUD outweigh the potential risks, but has also caused a delay for many women in recognizing and diagnosing the signs and symptoms of problems with Mirena.
As a result of the vague and misleading warnings, many women have not sought immediate medical treatment at the first signs of problems that may suggest the Mirena IUD has mirgrated or moved from the intended position, including:
- Missing Mirena IUD Guide Strings
- Abdominal Pain
- Heavy Bleeding or Vaginal Discharge
- Abnormally Late Menstrual Period
- Nausea, Vomiting, Chills, Fever or Other Flu-Like Symptoms
- Painful Sexual Intercourse
