Mirena IUD

Mirena IUD Injury Lawyers in Cleveland

Legal Protection for Victims of Corporate Negligence

Spangenberg Shibley & Liber LLP is investigating potential lawsuits against Bayer Healthcare on behalf of people injured by its Mirena birth control product. Our attorneys understand the difficulties that are encountered when someone is injured by a drug or medical device.

What is Mirena?

Mirena is an intrauterine device (IUD) manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals that works by slowly releasing the birth control hormone levonorgestrel into the uterus, and is intended to be used as an intrauterine contraceptive for up to 5 years.

It is implanted in the uterus in order to create a membrane around the cervix, preventing pregnancy long-term. The device is highly popular and is becoming more popular among women who prefer not to take a daily pill.

What Injuries Does Mirena Cause?

Intrauterine devices are intended to stay in place until they are removed, but it is possible for them to move in a condition known as IUD migration. Migration of the device can cause severe pain and injury by piercing the abdominal cavity, pelvis, bladder, or blood vessels. In turn, this can lead to serious internal bleeding, damage, and even infection.

Bayer insists that IUD migration is rare, but a UCLA study asserts that it’s far more common than Bayer has let on. Migration is a serious condition that requires surgery to correct —sometimes requiring immediate emergency surgery to prevent further damage to the abdominal cavity.

Other serious injuries include:

  • Device expulsion
  • Pregnancy complications
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Ectopic pregnancies

These conditions are deeply painful and harmful, requiring surgery to prevent excessive bleeding, infertility, bacterial infections, or life-threatening pregnancies.
