Attorneys with Beasley Allen Law Firm are investigating cases of injury associated with the Mirena IUD. The intrauterine birth control system has been associated with complications such as organ perforation, migration of the device to the outside of the uterus, expulsion of the IUD, and embedment in the uterus.

The Mirena IUD, made by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000 to prevent pregnancy. In 2009, the FDA approved the device to treat heavy menstrual bleeding in women who used IUDs as their method of birth control. It became the first IUD approved for this indication.

The small flexible device is inserted into the cervix and delivers a small amount of the hormone levonorgestrel. The most serious adverse events reported include ectopic pregnancy; intrauterine pregnancy; group A streptococcal sepsis; pelvic inflammatory disease; embedment of the device in the uterine wall; and perforation of the uterine wall or cervix.

Other, more common side effects include uterine bleeding/spotting at irregular intervals, headache, ovarian cysts, vaginitis, pain during menstruation, pelvic pain, and breast tenderness.

Pharmaceutical companies have a responsibility to adequately warn people of the dangers associated with their drugs or devices. Women who have or have had a Mirena IUD and experienced complications are encouraged to talk with an attorney to see if they may have a claim against the manufacturer.
