  • Mirena® Contraceptive Intrauternine Device (IUD)

    Galfand Berger LLP is investigating cases involving women injured by the Mirena Contraceptive Intrauternine Device (IUD).

    Mirena, manufactured by Bayer, is a long-acting method of birth control called an intrauterine device (IUD). A healthcare provider implants the tiny T-shaped device in the uterus, where it releases small doses of hormones into the bloodstream for up to five years.

    More than two million women in the U.S. use the Mirena IUD as a contraceptive or treatment for heavy menstrual bleeding.

    Side-Effects of Mirena IUD – At any time, Mirena can migrate and can cut through (perforate) the uterus, embed in the uterine wall, omentum, liver, bladder and other organs, and cause deadly infections. Removal of Mirena requires surgery in these cases, but doctors must first find it, which is very painful.

    Our firm is investigating cases involving:

    • Perforation of the uterine wall or cervix
    • Movement into the abdomen or other organs
    • Embedment in the uterine wall
    • Pregnancy in the fallopian tube
    • Pregnancy with Mirena in the uterus
    • Sepsis

    If you, a family member or friend have been implanted with a Mirena Contraceptive Intrauternine Device (IUD) and have experienced complications or unusual side effects, contact your doctor’s office or hospital about your injury.
