Bayer Mirena Intrauterine Device
Women nationwide are filing lawsuits over injuries allegedly caused by the Mirena IUD (intrauterine device). The IUD injury lawsuits allege that Bayer Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of the Mirena IUD, sold a dangerous product, hid the side effects and risks of the device, and engaged in deceptive advertising practices.
The FDA approved Bayer’s Mirena IUD device in 2000 and since that time, the federal regulatory agency has received more than 45,000 adverse reports related to the intrauterine device. About 2 in 1,000 who received the Mirena IUD and other IUDs reported uterine perforation injuries. Such an injury may cause other side effects and complications including organ damage, intestinal problems, infections, expulsion of the IUD device, and scarring.
Individuals who suffered post-surgery complications may be eligible for a compensation award by filing a Mirena IUD lawsuit.

Mirena complications and side effects may include:
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Internal scarring
- IUD expulsion
- Uterine perforations
- Idiopathic intracranial hypertension/pseudotumor cerebri
- Migration of the Bayer Mirena IUD outside the uterus
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
Some complications and side effects related to Bayer’s Mirena IUD device may require additional surgeries and medical operations, which may cause further complications.
Mirena lawsuits are being filed against Bayer for the allegedly dangerous and defective Mirena IUD. The bases for these legal claims include false and misleading advertising and marketing, breach of implied and express warranty, producing a dangerous and defective medical device, and failure to warn health care providers and American consumers about serious side effects, risks, and complications that puts women’s health at risk.
Many of the lawsuits allege Bayer knew about these risks but recklessly disregarded them and sold the IUD device in order to increase its corporate profits.
