About Mirena IUD
Mirena is an IUD, or intrauterine device, which is implanted in a woman’s uterus to prevent pregnancy. The actual device is very small and T-shaped, and it prevents pregnancy by releasing small amounts of the hormone levonorgestrel. As this hormone can often prevent ovulation entirely, Mirena is also sometimes used to help women who have very heavy periods. Mirena can remain safely in the body for up to five years and it can always be removed if the woman should decide to pursue pregnancy. While Mirena is often promoted as a safe and worry-free form of birth control, adverse event reports and a number of scientific studies show that it could cause serious injury.
Mirena IUD Problems
In a recent study conducted by the American Public Health Association, it was stated that many doctors hesitate to recommend Mirena to patients because of the serious risk of injury posed by this device and Mirena IUD complications. Our Mirena IUD lawyers have worked with multiple women who have encountered serious problems with Mirena, such as:
- Breast tenderness and pain
- Device expulsion from the body
- Decreased libido
- Weight gain
- Difficulty removing Mirena that leads to surgery
- Uterus perforation
- Migration of Mirena outside of the uterus
In 2011, the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology stated that all women are suitable candidates for Mirena. However, some studies have shown a higher rate of Mirena side effects in women who have already undergone an abortion or given birth.

In medical product liability lawsuits, many women have joined with lawyers who claim that Bayer, the company that makes Mirena, should have known of the substantial risk of injuries and side effects linked to their product, but that they failed to adequately warn of these issues and negligently promoted the IUD as a safe form of birth control. If you have suffered organ perforation, device migration, or even surgery to remove Mirena IUD, you could be entitled to compensation for your physical, financial, and emotional damages. We encourage you to contact a Mirena IUD lawyer today to learn about your rights.
