Other Mirena® Side Effects & Risks
Mirena®, a long-acting reversible contraceptive, is a T-shaped intrauterine device (IUD) that releases hormones into the body to help prevent pregnancy. Since its release, Mirena has been linked to serious side effects, including severe infection and uterine perforation. Some women who use Mirena have also experienced other serious side effects that require surgical intervention.
If you or someone you love has suffered side effects from Mirena, you may be eligible to file a Mirena lawsuit for compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering. Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough can guide you through this process. Contact us at (800) 210-8503 or fill out a free initial consultation form, and see how we can help you.
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration’s safety guide for Mirena, the device is linked to several potential complications, such as:
- Ectopic Pregnancy
Women who get pregnant while using Mirena have increased risks of ectopic pregnancies, which can result in serious complications, including the loss of future fertility.
- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
Women who use Mirena have a higher risk of developing PID within the first 20 days after inserting the device into the uterus. Some PID cases can cause damage of the uterus and even necessitate a hysterectomy.
Mirena complications can be painful and often require surgery and long periods of recovery that can put you out of work. At Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough, we believe innocent victims like you shouldn’t have to suffer because of unsafe products and medical devices.
