Mirena Side Effects
Patients experiencing serious side effects from Mirena birth control have begun filing lawsuits against the manufacturer, Bayer Pharmaceuticals. The Mirena intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD) has been linked to potentially fatal complications including:
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Uterine perforation
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Abnormal vaginal bleeding
- Vaginal scarring
- IUD expulsion
In 2009, The Food and Drug Administration issued two warning letters to Bayer Pharmaceuticals stating that their online advertisements were misleading and did not adequately communicate risks of Mirena IUD side effects.
Patients filing Mirena lawsuits allege that the manufacturers knew about the severe risks associated with the birth control device and failed to provide adequate warnings to patients.
