Reports of many different side effects from the Mirena IUD is coming in to our very active Facebook page. Women are reporting many different side effects they feel sure about is a side effect of the Mirena IUD in their body. The law firms how ever are only accepting a very small portion of the reported side effects in to their Mirena Lawsuit.
To give women a straight up answer to what is accepted into the litigation this list should be as complete as it gets right now.
- Mirena IUD inserted after 2003
- After insertion you went to the regular check out to make sure it was in the right place.
- The Mirena IUD migrated from the original place.
- The Mirena IUD Perforated the uterus
- The Mirena IUD was embedded in the uterus or cervix
- You had to have had Laproscopic Surgical to remove the IUD.
Very important. Anesthesia does not constitute a surgery, there must be an incision to get it removed.
When Should I Call The Lawyers About My Mirena IUD ?
First if you are having pelvic pain or pain in the nether regions first you need to go see your doctor. Women are describing the pain as severe pain, pain during intercourse, pain sitting down, constant stomach pain and sharp pains in the vaginal area. If you are experiencing any of these symptoms its time to go see your doctor or OBGYN. If they cannot find the Mirena IUD you need to insist on getting a CT scan taken as soon as possible.
The CT scan will confirm or deny your suspicions about the Mirena IUD if its still in place or if it has migrated though your uterus wall or embedded in the uterus or cervix.
If you find out that your fears are true its time to talk to your doctor about a surgery to get the Mirena IUD removed.
Ones you have the surgery date confirmed with the doctor its time to call the lawyers to tell them what is going on and to get your name in their computer. They will sign you up for the lawsuit and tell you about the things they need from you and your doctor after the surgery.
How Long Before I Get A Mirena IUD Settlement ?
The first trial in the Mirena IUD lawsuit will be in the spring of 2014 where 12 test cases will go in front of a jury so the defense and the plaintiff (manufacture Bayer) can see how a jury looks at the injury their birth control device has caused. Ones the trials are over and some jury verdict’s have been given to the victims it is time for the defense (US) and the manufacture (Bayer) to sit at the table and try to come to some agreement on a global settlement on all the victims out there. As you guys might know the manufacture Bayer has had another birth control pill that they have recently paid Billions of dollars to settle injury cases in. This would be the Yaz birth control settlement where injuries like blood clots (DVT, PE or Stroke) had the manufacture paying victims between $70,000 and $250,00 per injury. You can join the Yaz settlement here as its still going on.
My best guess on a Mirena IUD Settlement is fall of 2014 to spring of 2015. This would give the lawyers time to conclude the trials and give the parties time to sit down and talk settlement numbers.

Since Mirena was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000 as a birth control device and in 2009 to treat heavy periods, thousands of women have been prescribed this IUD by their physicians. While this birth control method is very effective, many that have used this birth control method have reported side effects such as vaginal hemorrhage, device migration and expulsion. In the most severe cases, women harmed by this IUD have had to undergo revision surgery. These women feel that they were not adequately warned by the drug manufacturer Bayer about the serious risks involved with their product.
FDA warning letter to Bayer
According to a letter from the FDA sent to Bayer, Mirena marketing may have minimized the risks associated with using this birth control system by making false or misleading presentations in violation of the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the FDA’s regulations.

Back to Mirena lawsuit settlements
Many women are now turning to legal experts after experiencing severe complications as a result of using Mirena.
What is Mirena?
Mirena (Levonorgestrel) is an intrauterine contraceptive system (IUD) approved for women who have already had at least one child. It’s made of a soft, flexible plastic with a string or “tail” also made of plastic and is placed by a medical professional.
This birth control device contains the female hormone, levonorgestrel. Available only by prescription, it is placed in the uterus where it slowly releases the hormone. When it is in place, Mirena stops a woman’s egg from fully developing which prevents fertilization by a sperm and prevents pregnancy. Once implanted, the system can be left in place for up to five years and is more than 99 percent effective at preventing pregnancy.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) also approved Mirena for use to treat heavy menstrual bleeding, primarily recommended for women that have already given birth.
For many American women, using an IUD such as Mirena is a convenient choice for birth control. No daily pills to remember to take and once inserted, it can almost be forgotten for up to five years. However, this option can also be responsible for dangerous side effects.
Mirena Side Effects
Mirena was approved by the FDA in 2000. Since then, there have been thousands of serious adverse complications reported to the FDA. Some of the injuries reported include:
- Perforation of the uterine wall
- Device embedded itself in the uterine wall
- Device migrated from the original implanted location
- Patient became pregnant while device was implanted
The use of Mirena is associated with a number of other risks such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), ovarian cysts, irregular bleeding, and permanent loss of fertility.
Bayer, the manufacturer of Mirena has been warned in the past by the FDA for understating the risks of using their IUD while overstating the benefits. According to a letter from the FDA Division of Drug Marketing, Advertising, and Communications, Bayer had made “unsubstantiated claims” about the efficacy of their product while minimizing the risks to the consumer of using Mirena. They were told to not make any further “false or misleading presentations regarding Mirena.”
Unfortunately, many of those trusting women that believed they had found the right contraception method for them based on Bayer’s promotional materials now find themselves suffering from Mirena side effects.
For those women, we may be able to offer hope. Our lawyers have experience fighting for their client’s rights against large drug companies. You may be able to receive compensation for your injuries, pain and suffering as a result of using Mirena. To find out, all you have to do is fill out the form on the side of this page.
Should I File a Lawsuit ?
You might be able to file a valid lawsuit if you had Mirena implanted after 2003 and experienced any of these conditions while the IUD was still implanted:
- Perforation of the uterine wall – this can result in infection, hemorrhaging and tearing of the uterine wall.
- Embedment to the uterine wall – if the device attaches to the uterine wall it may not be able to prevent pregnancy and many need to be removed surgically.
- Migration of the IUD – Mirena may migrate (travel) from its original implantation location. It may cause physical damage including infertility and require surgery to remove the device.
If you suffered from any of the above and had Mirena removed or are scheduled for removal of the device, you are advised to contact us now as you may have a claim against the manufacturer. It is easy to find out, just fill out the form on the side of this page, and one of our consultants will call you back almost instantly to verify your information and answer any questions you might have regarding your MIrena lawsuit.
