The Mirena intrauterine device (IUD) has been known to become dislodged and migrate to another part of the body, and as a result, cause serious internal damage. One woman who used the Mirena IUD experienced just such a thing, and underwent more than four surgical operations to remove and repair damage caused by Mirena IUD migration. Her story was recently chronicled in an article by Newsweek.
This woman, who in the article is referred to as “K.”, received the Mirena IUD following a pregnancy. After implantation, the contraceptive device perforated her uterine wall, and migrated to her abdominal area.
Due to the injuries that she incurred from the Mirena IUD, as well as the numerous surgical operations that she underwent as a result of device perforation and migration, K. filed a lawsuit targeted at Bayer.
According to the Newsweek article, Bayer faces over 1,200 Mirena lawsuits in the U.S.
Women injured by Bayer’s device link the Mirena IUD to device perforation, migration, ectopic pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease, and infertility.
