Excessive Bleeding from Mirena IUD

Recent studies show that use of IUD contraceptives like Mirena has increased over 7.5 times what it was in 1995, with more than 2 million women each year using the device.

Unfortunately, the FDA has received more than 45,000 reports of women with these implants suffering severe side effects like Mirena bleeding.

Some of the complications that can lead to patient bleeding from Mirena include:

  • Inflammation or infection
  • Tearing of the uterine wall
  • Movement of device into the abdomen
  • Device embedment in uterine wall
  • Intestinal perforation
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Pregnancies resulting in miscarriage

In many cases, the injuries causing Mirena bleeding are so severe that women have to undergo surgery to remove the devices. Some have even been rendered infertile by the physical damage.

If you have experienced bleeding with your Mirena IUD, it is important to speak with your doctor as soon as possible about the potential for injury and your treatment options.

Also, litigation is growing against Bayer, the maker of the devices, as lawyers help those affected by Mirena IUDs file claims for their injuries based on the failure of the manufacturer to properly warn of the dangers.

If you or a loved one experienced Mirena bleeding that required surgery to remove the device, you may be entitled to substantial compensation. Contact us today to speak with a lawyer.

The FDA has reprimanded Bayer several times for failing to disclose the more serious side effects of Mirena IUDs, while marketing them as safe, convenient and innovative birth control alternatives.

For years, the company organized “Mom Central” community functions, where nurses and company representatives targeted busy moms with scripted claims that Mirena would help with intimacy and make them “look and feel great.”

Bayer now faces growing litigation from thousands of women who suffered Mirena bleeding due to injury and had to undergo surgery to remove the devices. Experts predict the cases may eventually be consolidated into a federal court as the number of claims increase.

Although the FDA has disclosed thousands of reports of women suffering Mirena side effects, experts fear that many women using the devices still don’t know the full risks or that their contraceptive may have caused certain complications.

A lawyer can explain the current litigation involving Mirena, as well as whether your case may qualify and how long you have to take action.
