Mirena Infections

According to the medical product liability lawyers at Arentz Law Group, P.C., Mirena infections are only one of the many serious side effects linked to this device. Mirena is a form of birth control which is implanted into a woman’s uterus, known as an IUD (intrauterine device). Though Mirena was aggressively marketed as a safe and convenient alternative to the pill and other birth control methods, many women are coming forward after sustaining serious injury due to infections caused by Mirena and additional side effects such as organ perforation. If you have been harmed by a Mirena infection, you could be entitled to substantial compensation for medical bills and other damages.

Signs of a Mirena Infection

While women are warned that the risk of infection or pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is present during and immediately after insertion of Mirena, a number of women are now claiming that they were not sufficiently warned about the potential for infections that erupt long after Mirena is placed. Multiple women have suffered serious infections after their Mirena IUD migrated out of its intended position and perforated the uterus or other organs. If you use Mirena for birth control, you need to be aware of the following signs of a Mirena infection:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Chills
  • Fever
  • Missing Mirena IUD string
  • Abnormal, late, or irregular menstrual cycle
  • Flu-like symptoms
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge

Women who have been implanted with Mirena are also at a heightened risk for developing bacterial vaginosis, which is caused by an imbalance of the healthy bacteria normally found in the vagina. While this infection may be treated with antibiotics, it sometimes results in the need to surgically remove Mirena.
