The Ruth Law Team is handling claims involving the intrauterine device marketed as Mirena. An IUD is a method of birth control used by close to 160 million women. An IUD is intended to prevent pregnancy for up to five years by emitting hormones after implantation. Many lawsuits have already been filed around the country claiming the product is “defective and unreasonably dangerous.”

Mirena is manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals. Mirena has been in use in Europe since 1991 and was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000. According to FDA reports, there have been more than 45,000 adverse events reported, including device expulsion, device dislocation and vaginal hemorrhage. The Mirena device is a small, T-shaped container of flexible plastic that releases continuous doses of a hormone, levonorgesterel, commonly found in oral contraceptives. The hormone thickens the wall of mucous lining the uterus and decreases the motility and survival rates of sperm entering the uterus, thus reducing the chances of pregnancy.

Lawyers You Can Trust

Mirena IUD Linked to Serious Side Effects

In some women, Mirena can cause serious complications, including:

In studies, the IUD has been shown to migrate to the pelvis and adhere to the internal layer of the uterine wall and ovarian walls. What makes this dangerous is that the device is difficult to find and remove. Some women have had to undergo multiple surgeries to find and remove the device.

Approximately 2 in 1000 women who were fitted with Mirena and other IUDs have reported cases of uterine perforation. If Mirena perforates the uterine wall, it is believed that the device can travel into the abdominal cavity and potentially puncture the bladder or intestines. This may lead to further complications such as: infection, intestinal obstruction, organ damage, adhesion and internal scarring.

Pseudotumor Cerebri Lawsuits

In addition to the issues mentioned above, Mirena and other hormonal birth control implants and pills have been linked to an increased risk for pseudotumor cerebri (PTC). Pseudotmor cerebri, meaning “false brain tumor” is a medical condition that can cause severe headaches, vision loss, permanent blindness, blurry vision, dizziness, and migraines. The symptoms are caused by increased pressure on the optic nerve due to a large amount of cerebrospinal fluid inside the skull. Unfortunately, there is no way to completely reverse injury to the optic nerve, rather, some medications may prevent future symptoms. Mirena’s label fails to address PTC despite a known link between the product and these complications dating as far back as 1995.

Other names of Pseudotumor cerebri include benign intracranial hypertension and idiopathic intracranial hypertension (IIH).
