The Mirena IUD has been linked to several complications including ectopic pregnancy, perforation of the uterus, pelvic inflammatory disease, infection and irregular vaginal bleeding. Patients experiencing severe complications from the birth control device can contact Mirena lawyers to determine whether they are eligible to file a lawsuit against the manufacturer, Bayer Pharmaceuticals.
The Mirena IUD contains a synthetic version of the hormone progestrin and is said to be effective in preventing pregnancy for up to five years. Patients filing Mirena lawsuits against Bayer allege that the manufacturers knew about the severe risks associated with Mirena and failed to provide adequate warnings to women with the birth control device.
In 2009, The Food and Drug Administration issued two warning letters to Bayer Pharmaceuticals stating that their online Mirena IUD advertisements were misleading and did not adequately communicate risks associated with the birth control.
