Like all prescription drugs, Mirena has many potential side effects. Yet, in some cases, the “side effects” are serious complications that can cause injury and even death.
Should you be concerned about the side effects you are experiencing from your Mirena IUD? Do your Mirena side effects indicate a more serious problem? If so, can you hold Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Inc., the company that manufactures Mirena, accountable?
If you have experienced serious side effects or have lost a loved one from using Mirena, you may be able to bring a lawsuit against the company that caused you harm. Speak with a Mirena side effects lawyer at Girardi | Keese to learn more: 800-401-4530.
Thousands of women have faced serious complications after having a Mirena intrauterine device inserted, including:
- IUD expulsion (the body expels the IUD)
- Uterine perforation
- Embedment in the uterus or another body part
- Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)
- Sepsis infection
- Ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy occurring outside of the womb)
- Erosion of the vagina and other areas near the IUD
- Blood clots in the legs and lungs
- Heart attack or stroke
Some of the above Mirena side effects can lead to infertility, multiple surgeries (including hysterectomies), lifelong pain and even death.
Did Bayer put a dangerous drug on the market? We believe so. At Girardi | Keese, we are prepared to hold Bayer accountable for the serious injuries Mirena has caused women in California and across the U.S.
