Mirena Complication Lawsuits

Many women utilize certain birth control brands because of the effectiveness of pregnancy prevention. They are also led to believe these medical devices are safe alternatives compared to conventional birth control methods.

For example, Mirena advertised that their pregnancy prevention device was an effective and ‘safe’ way to prevent pregnancies. In fact, their website once claimed that their IUD device prevented pregnancies in 3 ways:

  1. Prevents sperm from entering the uterus by thickening cervical mucus.
  2. Bans the sperm from reaching and fertilizing the egg.
  3. Or, preventing the fertilized egg from implanting itself by causing the lining of the uterus to thin.

When a medical product injures a patient, it’s not only painful, the expense of recovery treatment can be astronomical. Unfortunately, some insurance companies will not even cover the cost of corrective treatments or recovery treatments.

Often times, when a patient files a claim against a drug manufacturer, the claim is flat out denied. Drug manufacturers often have attorneys working diligently on their side to protect their i denied and not the interest of victim.

If the patient attempts to sue, without adequate representation, the drug companies usually do the next best thing - they appeal.

What is Mirena?

Mirena is popularly known as an effective IUD (intrauterine device). The birth control device is made from a small plastic material with flexibility. The sole purpose of this device is to help prevent pregnancy. The IUD is inserted into a woman’s uterus in order to release a hormone called levonorgestrel.

Common Symptoms and Side Effects of Mirena

It has been discovered that birth control devices like Mirena, that releases levonorgestrel, may cause a woman to develop Pseudotumor Cerebri (PTC). PTC is a neurological condition that causes a buildup of fluid around the brain area. Medical experts suggest that women who have been implanted with a Mirena device (or any device that releases levonorgestrel) to seek medical attention immediately if they are experiencing any of the following symptoms:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain (dull or severe)
  • Blurry vision
  • Dizziness
  • Severe migraine headaches
  • Shoulder pain
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Tinnitus (a buzzing sound in the ear)

One of the most serious side effects of using this birth control device is a symptom that is very similar to a brain tumor. The symptom is called ‘Pseudotumor cerebri’ - this symptom causes increased cranial pressure, that is why it is compared to a brain tumor.
