Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
The Mirena IUD has been linked to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and other serious side effects. Patients filing Mirena lawsuits allege that the manufacturer, Bayer Pharmaceuticals, knew about the severe risks associated with the birth control device and failed to provide adequate warnings to patients.
The risk of contracting pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is greatest within the first month after the Mirena IUD is inserted and is heightened among women with a sexually transmitted disease. Women with pelvic inflammatory disease report experiencing pain and abnormal vaginal bleeding, while more severe cases of PID can result in infertility.
If you or a loved one suffered from pelvic inflammatory disease or other serious side effects after being implanted with the Mirena IUD, you may be eligible to file a lawsuit.
