Several individuals have experienced complications after being fitted with the intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD) called Mirena.
Mirena has been linked to health complications including organ perforation. Even more serious is that it has also been suggested that the IUD can migrate from its original position after insertion, perforating the uterine wall or lodging itself in the uterus. Mirena may also migrate into the pelvic area, leading to adhesions, scarring or intestinal perforation.
This may trigger the need for nothing less than a full hysterectomy, and more serious complications could result in death.
Other serious side effects that have been linked to Mirena include:
- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
- Birth of a child with a birth defect
- Erosion of the surrounding areas
- Perforation of the uterus
- Intestinal perforations or obstruction
If you or a loved one experienced these side effects after being inserted with Mirena, you may be able to file a claim against the manufacturer for medical bills, pain and suffering and other damages.
