ATTN: TORHOERMAN LAW IS NO LONGER ACCEPTING NEW MIRENA INJURY CLIENTS.
Mirena is a hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) inserted into the uterus for long-term pregnancy prevention. It is a T-shaped device a bit larger than a quarter. The device prevents pregnancy by stopping sperm before it reaches the uterus and fertilizes an egg. If used correctly, the chances of getting pregnant are less than 1%.
There are two types of IUDs. The first is copper based and does not release hormones. The second is a plastic device that releases a controlled dose of hormones; Mirena is such a device. Mirena releases a hormone called levonorgestrel. Mirena is designed to prevent pregnancy for up to five years and is one of the most common IUDs in the United States.
In the United States, more than two million women have used Mirena since the device was introduced in 2000. Since then, roughly 70,000 complaints about the dangerous side effects associated with the drug have been made to the U.S. Food & Drug Administration.
Lawsuits have been filed against Bayer Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Mirena, by women across the country who allege that Bayer failed to adequately report or warn of the dangers associated with the drug-device combo. The lawsuits not only allege that dangers were understated by the manufacturer and hidden from consumers but also allege the devices were both defective and unreasonably dangerous.
If you believe you have been injured by the Mirena IUD birth control device, please seek medical attention right away.
These side effects are dangerous and will more than likely require meeting with both a neurologist, who will monitor the nervous system and spinal cord and an ophthalmologist, who monitors potential eye problems.
There are multiple treatment options, including surgery, but the treatment will depend on each individual’s condition and level of severity.
