CHARLOTTE, NC, August 01, 2014 /24-7PressRelease/ -- The Mirena IUD is a very popular form of birth control with more than two million women utilizing the device. It is considered by some physicians and the FDA to be one of the safest birth control devices on the market today.
It is a t-shaped intrauterine device (IUD) that is inserted into the uterus and releases a hormone to prevent pregnancy. While the product is an effective practice to prevent child birth that lasts for approximately five years after each insertion, it also has some potentially horrifying side effects and complications that could dramatically affect your future, health and ability to have children.
Since 2000, there have been more than 70,000 complaints about the Mirena IUD, raising eyebrows as to the safety of the device as advertised. Many of the complaints are related to device dislocation, which is when the IUD becomes embedded in the uterus and eventually migrates outside of the uterus and into other parts of the body, such as the abdomen, causing complications and at times requiring surgery for removal.
There are some less-advertised damages to the body that can be caused by complications associated with the Mirena IUD, including scarring, infection or damage to other organs; menstrual complications; ovarian cysts, inability to conceive; and perforation of the uterus.
"While this device may be an effective form of birth control, there are several undesirable and devastating side effects that can come to fruition as a result of utilizing the device. It is truly tragic when I see women using this device to be safe but end up causing serious harm to their bodies. Many of these more serious side effects are not even disclosed to some patients, which makes the matter even more tragic," says [PLACEHOLDER].
Currently, there are more than 220 cases filed in both state and federal courts stemming from complications with the Mirena IUD. Many women have been injured from using this device and have consulted a medical malpractice lawyer to seek justice, and so should you.
