NEW YORK--(Wendy R. Fleishman, a personal injury attorney with the national plaintiffs’ law firm Lieff Cabraser Heimann & Bernstein, LLP, has released a video on YouTube discussing the alleged serious side effects of Mirena, an intrauterine device (IUD) used by millions of American women. Ms. Fleishman also summarizes the claims brought by injured women in lawsuits against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Mirena.

“Uterine perforation is a serious injury that many women with the Mirena IUD have suffered”
Over 45,000 adverse events from Mirena have been reported to U.S. health regulators since Mirena’s introduction to the market. The most serious Mirena risks and side effects include:
- uterine perforation (the IUD tears through the cervix or the wall of the uterus),
- ectopic pregnancy (when the embryo implants outside the uterine cavity),
- risk of sterility
“Uterine perforation is a serious injury that many women with the Mirena IUD have suffered,” stated Ms. Fleishman. “The Mirena IUD can move within their uterus, rip through the cervix or wall of the uterus, and enter the abdominal cavity, sometimes years after the IUD was properly inserted.”
Women who have suffered serious Mirena complications and pain have charged that Bayer failed to disclose adequately to them and their physicians the risk of migration of the Mirena after insertion. The lawsuits also charge that the Mirena IUD poses serious side effects and is a defective and dangerous medical device.
