As a Texas IUD Attorney and Medical Doctor, I am providing this update regarding the risk of perforation and injuries associated with the Mirena IUD. The FDA has received more than 47,000 reports of injuries and complications associated with the Mirena intrauterine device (IUD).

Most of the Mirena IUD problems reported to the FDA involved the birth control device being discharged from women, migrating to different locations or causing vaginal bleeding according to the analysis.

Thousands of Mirena Adverse Side Effects

Thousands Mirena adverse event reports were received by the FDA between November 1997 and late August 2012, according to a information provided by Adverse Events, Inc. (AEI).

What is Mirena IUD?

The Mirena IUD is a birth control device that is implanted in the uterus to prevent pregnancy for up to five years. The Mirena IUD is designed to be removable and is touted as a worry free method of birth control.

Recently experts are worried about the risk with the Mirena IUD where it may perforate the uterus and migrate out of position.

Mirena IUD Lawsuits Against Bayer

Many women are now pursuing a Mirena injury lawsuit against Bayer, claiming that the manufacturer failed to adequately warn about the risk of women experiencing these complications of perforation and results in the need for surgery to remove the IUD.

An estimated 10 million women have had a Mirena implanted inside of them since 2000 according to some reports. As of early last month, at least 50 lawsuits over IUD problems had been filed throughout the federal court system.

The federal lawsuits against Bayer have been consolidated in the Southern District of New Year for pre-trial work up and discovery.
