Roughly 5% of women with a Mirena IUD will experience an IUD that dislocates or gets expelled.
A dislocation or expulsion is when the IUD dislocates partially or fully from the uterus. This can lead to severe abdominal pain, pain during intercourse, or worse. There are even cases where the IUD dislocates and perforates the uterus, leading to serious complications.
If it is determined that Bayer Corporation, the manufacturer of the Mirena IUD, was negligent in their full disclosure of this risk to women, financial compensation may be available to those who have been injured by this product.
Other side effects that have been linked to Mirena IUDs include ovarian cysts, infection, ectopic pregnancy, septic abortion, etc. To learn more about these and other risks of using the Mirena IUDs, please visit the Mirena IUD Lawyers | Cates Mahoney, LLC homepage.
