Mirena IUD Migration
Mirena IUD migration occurs when the birth control device moves from its original position, often times perforating the uterus in the process of doing so. IUD migration can result in severe pain and discomfort for birth control users.
After migrating, the Mirena IUD can become lost in the abdominal cavity and puncture the bladder, bowel, intestines and other internal organs. Patients experiencing Mirena migration generally must undergo surgery to remove the defective birth control device and repair damage to internal organs.
The Mirena IUD has also been linked to complications such as ectopic pregnancy, vaginal scarring and uterine perforation. 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.
If you or a loved one suffered from IUD migration, pelvic inflammatory disease or other serious side effects after being implanted with the Mirena IUD, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit.
