Mirena IUD Lawsuits Don’t Deter Bayer From Getting New IUD Approved

Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals recently received FDA approval for a new IUD contraceptive device, similar to the Mirena IUD, which has been causing over 45,000 women to suffer from serious Mirena IUD side effects. The newly approved IUD is called a Skyla, and has a similar design to the Mirena IUD. It is also small, plastic, and t-shaped, inserted into the uterus to release low doses of a hormone. It is designed to prevent pregnancy for three years, and tested to be 99 percent effective.

However, 22 percent of the clinical trial participants needed to have the device removed due to suffering from adverse effects like vulvovaginitis, abdominal or pelvic pain, acne or seborrhea, ovarian cyst, headache, and other problems. The trial also showed incidences of ectopic pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease, and device migration, leading to uterine perforations.

These are the same side effects that thousands of women with a Mirena IUD also suffered. The Mirena IUD can spontaneously migrate, rendering it ineffective at preventing pregnancy, and the catalyst for a number of serious injuries, such as abscesses, perforations of the uterus, and pelvic inflammatory disease, and even damage to fertility. The Mirena IUD received FDA approval in 2000 and has been growing in popularity, with more than two million women in the U.S. currently using the device.

This means that more and more women are exposed to the risks of Mirena IUD injuries. Luckily, there is some recourse for victims of Mirena injuries through filing a lawsuit against the manufacturer. Mirena IUD lawsuits allege that Bayer designed a defective device and failed to warn potential patients about its risks and side effects. Mirena lawsuits also seek compensation for victims’ medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.

If you received a Mirena IUD and experienced adverse effects, contact a Mirena lawyer today to learn more about how to protect your legal rights. It is important to keep track of your medical appointments and expenses, documenting any doctor’s visits, missed work days, and treatments you undergo. Make sure you request a copy of your medical records. Call (877) 779-1414 to learn more.
