Now Evaluating Potential Mirena Claims

March 2013

Mirena IUD Side Effects, Injuries, Revision Surgeries

The Mulligan Law Firm is reviewing potential Mirena lawsuits involving those who were implanted with the intrauterine contraceptive device with the brand name “Mirena®”.

Mirena is a small, t-shaped plastic intrauterine device (IUD) that releases a hormone into the uterus to stop pregnancy. The device is manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals.

FDA approved Mirena in 2000 as a contraceptive for women who have had at least one child. In addition, in 2009, the FDA approved Mirena to treat heavy menstrual bleeding.

While marketing Mirena, the FDA warned Bayer that their advertising omitted serious and frequent risks associated with the device.

If you or a loved one have had problems with a MIRENA IUD, including, but not limited to the following, we would like to hear from you:

  • Surgery to remove the IUD
  • Perforation of the Uterus / Uterine Wall
  • Migration or movement of the IUD to location outside of the Uterus
  • Expulsion of the Mirena IUD from the body
  • Infertility
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease diagnosis
  • Perforation of the Intestine or other organs
  • Abscess of the Uterus
  • Complications that have resulted in surgery to remove the IUD
  • Infection in the Uterus caused by the Mirena IUD
  • Abscesses
  • Birth of a child with a birth defect
  • Embedment in the uterus
  • Peritonitis or inflammation of the membrane that lines the abdominal cavity and internal organs
  • Other Serious Injuries caused by the Mirena IUD, including sterilization, surgical removal of the uterus, etc.
  • Breast or other types of cancer.
  • Thrombosis – blood clots

Over 45,000 adverse events from Mirena have been reported in the United States since Mirena’s introduction.
