While most medical devices carry a risk of side effects, the Mirena IUD is a special case. In its case, the side effects are so severe that they can cause irreparable damage to the woman’s health, lengthy hospital stays, and emergency surgeries, and can affect future chances of reproduction.

Mirena can cause you and your family a number of losses. For example:

  • Bowel, intestinal, or uterine perforation
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
  • Surgical intervention for ectopic pregnancy
  • Emergency surgical removal and hospital recovery 
  • Abscesses
  • Infection
  • Abnormal or uncontrolled bleeding
  • Internal scarring
  • Device becoming embedded in the uterine wall
  • Spontaneous expulsion of the device
  • Future problems conceiving
  • Inability to have additional children
  • Inability to deliver future children without C-section
  • Costly medical procedures
  • Loss of income during injury and healing time

In addition to causing these issues, the company that makes the Mirena IUD has come under scrutiny for failing to adequately warn patients of injuries and complications of the device. Many lawsuits have arisen as a result of the company’s failure to acknowledge common injuries that result from the IUD and take reasonable steps to decrease the risks.
