Women implanted with the Mirena IUD have an increased risk of experiencing an ectopic pregnancy if the birth control device fails. Symptoms of ectopic pregnancy include nausea, severe abdominal pain, lower back pain and unusual vaginal bleeding.
Ectopic pregnancies occur outside of the uterus, generally in a fallopian tube. Ectopic pregnancies can be life-threatening and lead to permanent infertility in serious cases.
The Mirena intrauterine contraceptive device (IUD) has also been linked to serious side effects such as uterine perforation, IUD migration and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Patients experiencing severe complications are currently filing lawsuits against Mirena manufacturer Bayer Pharmaceuticals.
