Will Mirena IUD Birth Control Be Recalled From the Market?
A large number of women throughout the United States have suffered devastating complications from Mirena IUD birth control, where the device perforated the uterus, migrated to other areas of the body, caused infections or resulted in other problems associated with a dangerous buildup of fluid pressure in the brain. However, there is no indication that Bayer Healthcare will remove the birth control product from the market.
A mounting number of product liability lawsuits have been filed by women throughout the United States, some of which allege that a Mirena recall should be issued to remove the IUD from the market or place stronger warnings about the risks that may develop long after the device is inserted. However, it is not likely that the popular form of long-acting birth control will actually be recalled.
Mirena Failure to Warn Lawsuits

According to warnings provided to women and doctors for years, inadequate information was provided about the risks following insertion of the IUD into the uterus. According to allegations raised in product liability lawsuits, if better Mirena warnings were provided, many women could have avoided severe problems.
While providing inaccurate warnings, Bayer has also engaged in misleading advertising campaigns that suggest the Mirena IUD may actually improve a woman’s sex life, enhance personal relationships and make her look and feel better.
In December 2009, the FDA issued a warning letter to Bayer for overstating the efficacy of Mirena, presenting unsubstantiated claims, minimizing the risks associated with Mirena and providing false and misleading information.
While the FDA has not indicated that a Mirena market recall is being considered, many advocates believe that the federal health regulators may require Bayer to update the warning label and provide more accurate and complete information about the risk of:
- Pseudotumor cerebri (PTC) or intracranial hypertension (IH)
- Mirena Perforating the Uterine Wall
- Migration of Mirena IUD Out of the Uterus
- Infections from Mirena
- Risk of Surgical Removal for Mirena IUD if Problems Develop
