Justice for Victims of Mirena IUD

Have You Been A Victim of Dangerous Side Effects from Mirena IUD?

What is Mirena IUD?

Mirena is IUD is a type of intrauterine device used to prevent pregnancy. Although it can be used as an effective form of birth control, Mirena has been associated with a variety of serious medical complications. If you or a loved one has suffered because of Mirena, the St. Louis personal injury lawyers from Meyerkord, Meyerkord & Kurth can help you file a personal injury claim to collect financial compensation for your injuries.

How does Mirena work?

Mirena IUD is a small, soft, T-shaped piece of plastic that releases small amounts of hormones into the woman's uterus. The device must be inserted by a healthcare provider and is used by more than 2 million women in the United States. Once the device is in place, it controls pregnancy for no more than five years.

A healthcare provider can remove the device after five years, but it may be removed sooner. According to the Mirena website, it is effective 99% of the time. The Mirena website also warns that the product is not for everyone. Individuals who might be pregnant, have liver disease, easily contract infections, or have experienced unexplained bleeding from the vagina should not use Mirena IUD.

Dangerous Side Effects

Although Mirena can be used to prevent pregnancy, it has been associated with a number of serious side effectives. Embedment is one possible complication associated with Mirena IUD. Embedment occurs when the device becomes embedded in the myometrium (second layer of the uterine wall). When the device becomes embedded, it may result in pregnancy and should be removed. Depending on the severity of the embedment, the device may need to be surgically removed.

Breast cancer has also been associated with Mirena IUD. Individuals who currently have breast cancer or may have breast cancer should not use Mirena. Additionally, spontaneous instances of breast cancer have been associated with Mirena IUD during post marketing. Although it is difficult to determine the percentage of women who have developed cancer, it is possible that a causal relationship exists between cancer and Mirena IUD.
