Hundreds of lawsuits filed on behalf of women who suffered severe health complications linked to the migration of Mirena IUD birth control devices are moving forward, and those numbers continue to grow as the intrauterine contraceptive remains on the market and some women say that Bayer—which manufactures and markets Mirena IUD—has still not fully warned consumers of the product’s risks.
The Mobile, Alabama, injury attorneys at Long & Long are currently reviewing claims from women who may have experienced uterine perforations or other complications related to the internal migration of a Mirena IUD. Please call us 251-432-2277 for your free consultation with one of our lawyers if you suffered harm that may be associated with Mirena IUD.
The problems linked to Mirena IUD include uterine perforation, ectopic pregnancy, scarring, infections, and device embedment in the uterine wall. These complications can be painful and often require costly revision surgery to correct.
Pretrial proceedings for nearly 400 Mirena IUD lawsuits that are being consolidated in state and federal courts are set to begin in November. However, it is not too late to discuss your circumstances with an attorney if you sustained injury that may be due to Mirena IUD.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has received more than 70,000 complaints regarding Mirena IUD. While Bayer has ceased certain marketing claims related to Mirena IUD, the birth control device is still available. Some women have claimed that Mirena IUD use may contribute to infertility or, should a woman become pregnant while using Mirena IUD, miscarriage.
