Symptoms of Mirena Complications

Mirena complications have taken thousands of women by surprise after they put their trust in a device that was heavily promoted as a safer alternative to other methods of birth control.  Mirena is an intrauterine device (IUD) that a doctor implants into a woman’s uterus to prevent pregnancy.  The company that makes Mirena, Bayer, aggressively marketed the device based on claims of safety and failed to properly warn women and their doctors of the risk of serious Mirena injuries and complications.  While most women who use Mirena experience no negative side effects, the injuries they could suffer can be painful and debilitating, so it is important that all women who use Mirena are aware of the symptoms of Mirena complications.

Signs of Mirena IUD Infections

There is a known risk that women are at risk for an infection called pelvic inflammatory disease when Mirena is inserted.  This infection usually presents within the first 21 days after insertion, but many women have developed Mirena infections months or years after implantation as a result of complications like Mirena migration or Mirena uterus perforation.  Women developing a Mirena infection may experience the following symptoms:

  • Pain during sexual intercourse
  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Missing Mirena IUD string
  • Chills
  • Abnormally late period
  • Fever
  • Flu-like symptoms

Signs of Mirena IUD Migration

A number of women who have been implanted with Mirena have suffered Mirena migration, when the device moves out of its intended position in the uterus.  This can result in a number of alarming injuries including perforation of the uterus and other organs, infections, and the need to surgically remove Mirena.  If you use Mirena and experience the following signs of Mirena migration, you should seek immediate medical attention:

  • Missing Mirena strings
  • Unexplained infection
  • Severe pain in the abdominal area
  • Unexpected bleeding
