There are many forms of birth control on the market, and many women choose IUDs to prevent pregnancy due to their high rates of effectiveness that lasts for years. However, a popular IUD is linked to many health problems that has been affecting women for more than 30 years.

Paragard may cause the following complications:

  • Unplanned pregnancy due to device failure
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Infertility
  • Scarring
  • Increasing bleeding during periods

Some of the complications linked to Paragard are due to its mechanism of birth control. Unlike hormonal methods, Paragard releases copper into the lining of the uterus. This results in an inflammatory response which kills sperm. But in some women, this inflammatory response can be severe and result in serious complications.

Other women have developed complications and suffered injuries when they had their Paragard IUDs removed, while some have become pregnant when their IUDs were expelled. These complications and failures are unacceptable for a device that’s touted as being 99% effective and safe.

If you or someone you love was harmed by a Paragard IUD, you may be eligible to receive compensation. The risks posed by this birth control device are excessive, and many women are unaware of them. The fact that it has been on the market for over three decades with no revisions means that countless women may have been injured or harmed by it.
