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.

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:

    I was supposed to have a mirena put in, but changed my mind, deciding I couldn’t go through with it. It wasn’t just the horror stories I read about the potential side effects, I didn’t like the idea of having some weird looking thing put inside me, even though one female doctor said: “You can’t even feel it.” And I suppose she’d know, right? Sure. Over a year later, I don’t regret saying no, even though it caused problems between me and my mother (she was all for having the mirena put in). It’s my body and my choice, not hers. I trust doctors who try to force women to have the mirena as much as I do Sofia Vergara trying to get people to use Head And Shoulders anti-dandruff shampoo. Fact is, she’s getting paid to do that (just like the company marketing this destructive device) and I have taken that into account (I got told years ago antipsychotics were harmless-wrong!), just as I have my own doubts about mirena. I’m glad Ms. Vergara is getting paid big bucks (not unlike the big-time
    operators at Bayer) but I don’t want to use that product either since it can cause skin irritation. So- as I did with the mirena, I took that into account and made up my own mind. Deciding on no mirena insertion was a judgement call. I didn’t want the hassle of having to see the gynecologist every few months , nor experiencing side effects and having to go back to have it removed. Who would be to blame, anyway? I’d probably blame myself, since it’s not as though a gun was put to my head. But I stood my ground and said NO to the mirena.

    I had the IUD in for almost 5 years. Went to have it removed and it was stuck. Found a doctor that tried to get it out and it broke leaving fragmented arm in the uterus. Went in for surgery and it was still stuck due to embedment and location, if any further advances in removing could cause an emergency situation due to the blood vessels. So we left in because the only other option would be a hysterectomy and I wasn’t going to do that. Also a ton of health issues during and after removal like tachycardia before removal, chest pain,brain fog, joint pain, breathing issues. Palpations and digestive issues after the partial removal I am still trying to deal with.
