The Mirena IUD has been linked to serious complications, including uterine perforation. Uterine perforation occurs when the plastic IUD moves from its original insertion position and punctures the uterus.
Uterine perforation requires surgery to repair and can result in hemorrhage, infection and damage to other internal organs. In severe cases, uterine perforation can result in infertility. Uterine perforation can occur during IUD insertion or spontaneously after a defective Mirena IUD is implanted.
In addition to uterine perforation, serious complications such as ectopic pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease and abnormal vaginal bleeding have also been linked to the Mirena IUD. Patients filing Mirena lawsuits allege that the manufacturer, Bayer Pharmaceuticals, did not adequately inform patients of the severity of these complications.
