Mirena Lawyer FAQ

If you have suffered organ perforation, infection, surgical removal of Mirena, or device migration, you could be able to pursue substantial compensation for your damages in a dangerous product lawsuit.  Read on to learn more about Mirena side effects.

What is Mirena?

Made by Bayer, Mirena is an intra-uterine device (IUD) that was FDA-approved in 2000.  Mirena is a long-term contraceptive (birth control) device that a doctor inserts into a woman’s uterus.  Mirena prevents pregnancy in two ways.  First, it releases a progestin known as levonorgestrel to prevent the woman’s ovaries from releasing eggs.  Second, the device itself helps prevent the joining of sperm and egg.

What are Mirena side effects?

Mirena is promoted as a convenient and safe form of birth control, but has been linked to a number of alarming and potentially fatal side effects, including:

  • Peritonitis
  • Perforation of Uterus
  • Perforation of Ovaries
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  • Migration of Implant
  • Intestinal Perforation
  • Intestinal Obstruction
  • Internal Hemorrhage
  • Inflammation of tissue
  • Infertility
  • Erosion of Vagina
  • Erosion of Adjacent Areas or Organs
  • Embedment in Uterus
  • Ectopic Pregnancy
  • Abscesses
  • Death

What are signs of Mirena problems or migration?

Many women have experienced Mirena migration, where the device moves from its intended position.  This could cause perforation of the uterus and other organs, as well as severe infection, and requires immediate medical attention.  Signs of Mirena migration include:

  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Unusual bleeding
  • Unexplained infection

Has there been a Mirena recall?

To date, no Mirena recall has been issued.  However, a large number of women in the United States have suffered Mirena complications such as migration and uterus perforation, and many are calling for a Mirena recall.
