Mirena IUD lawsuits currently ranging in the hundreds could reach well into the thousands, according to legal pundits familiar with the situation. Patients who have suffered from Mirena uterine perforation and other Mirena side effects have alleged that the device’s manufacturer failed to warn them about the risks.
According to reports, Bayer Pharmaceutical’s intrauterine device (IUD) Mirena can migrate after insertion and has caused severe problems for birth control users. Some women with a Mirena IUD have become infertile or suffered from ectopic pregnancies as late as years after using the device.
An estimated 2 million American women have used a Mirena IUD in the past decade. Bayer had previously been warned for marketing Mirena as a way to feel great and increase sex drive, though studies found women who used the device often had the opposite effects.
