As a woman, you trust the guidance your doctor gives you about the type of medication or devices needed to keep you healthy and happy. But when something goes wrong, and you suddenly feel worse after visiting the doctor, you may wonder what happened and if you will be okay.
The Mirena IUD has left many women with life-changing injuries. The placement and usage of the device has the potential to cause uterine perforation, or the tearing of the uterus. If you have had a Mirena IUD placed, or you currently use a Mirena IUD, it is important to be aware of the symptoms, as these can be signs of a serious health risk.
If you have experienced any of the following while using the Mirena IUD, it is vital that you seek immediate medical attention.
- Rigidity, bloating and pain in the abdomen
- Lower abdominal pain
- Rapid heartbeat
- Heavy vaginal bleeding
- Inability to find the Mirena IUD string
If you have any of these symptoms, seek medical attention immediately. Without contacting your doctor right away, you risk the perforation getting worse and the device floating into your body, potentially injuring other organs.
Once you have sought medical attention, you may be eligible for compensation for your medical bills, pain and suffering.
