“My Mirena IUD completely perforated my uterus.”
“I was forced to undergo multiple surgeries, including an appendectomy and hysterectomy, because my Mirena IUD was embedded in my uterus.”
“I am infertile because of Mirena.”
“I lost a loved one to sepsis caused by Mirena.”
Since 2000, more than 70,000 women have submitted complaints to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals’ Mirena intrauterine devices (IUD). Thousands of those complaints involved serious issues, ranging from Mirena IUD expulsion to uterine perforation, device dislocation, pelvic inflammatory disease and even cancer.
Yet, Mirena remains on the market and women continue to be injured without so much as an apology from Bayer. That is why injured women and their families are turning to the courts to hold Bayer accountable for putting a defective drug on the market and failing to warn women of the serious complications that can occur.

More than 2 million women use Mirena IUDs. Many use them safely. Yet, what happens when something goes horribly wrong? Between 2008 and 2012, there were 4,775 complaints to the FDA about Mirena dislocation (including embedment in the uterus), 3,774 complaints of uterine expulsion and 1,322 complaints of uterine perforation, along with complaints of cancer, sepsis, ectopic pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility.
According to many of the women affected by Mirena, they did not receive warning of these dangerous Mirena side effects and were blindsided by a device that was supposed to be a revolutionary way of preventing pregnancy.
