Mirena® FDA Warnings
Mirena® is a T-shaped hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) that’s inserted into the uterus. The device slowly releases levonorgestrel—a form of progesterone—into the body to help prevent pregnancy. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has linked Mirena to many serious health complications, both for women who use it and their children if the women become pregnant. Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough is familiar with the FDA’s warnings, and we’re ready to handle Mirena lawsuits for the injuries and illnesses that this device can cause.
Potential Mirena® Injuries
The FDA’s safety information guide for Mirena notes a variety of serious injuries, illnesses, and health conditions the device may cause, including:
- Ovarian Cysts
Mirena can disrupt the ovulatory cycles in women who use the device. This can result in enlarged follicles and ovarian cysts, which may become cancerous if left untreated.
The wall of the uterus or cervix can become damaged or even perforated while inserting Mirena or at any point while in the body. Women who suffer from uterine or cervical perforations often require surgery to repair the damage and remove the device.
- Sepsis (Infection)
Some women who use Mirena may develop serious infections within hours or days of inserting the devices. These infections often require immediate medical treatment and can be fatal if left untreated.
Mirena has the potential to cause injuries that require expensive procedures to treat and time away from work to recover. Don’t let an injury caused by an unsafe product put you and your family in a financial bind. Ferrer, Poirot & Wansbrough wants to fight for the compensation you deserve.
