Mirena IUD Lawsuits
Bayer marketed it as a hassle free birth control device, misleading women about its safety, and was reprimanded by the FDA for deceptive marketing in 2009. Women who have become infertile or suffered other serious complications after using the Mirena IUD are shocked that they could be prescribed such a dangerous device.
The reports from women who have miscarried or declared infertile after using the Mirena device are nothing short of devastating. Even a 23-year old woman who used the Mirena IUD for birth control reportedly suffered two miscarriages linked to her use of the Mirena IUD for birth control and has been diagnosed with infertility. Women have been told by their doctors that the device is safe and have seen the ads on TV making the Mirena IUD out to be “easy” and hassle free. After suffering serious side effects and fertility complications, women have begun searching for answers for the cause of their troubles. Once they learn about the terrible side effects of the Mirena IUD, including uterine perforation, miscarriages, and infertility, it is sadly already too late for many of them.
As of 2012, the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA) received over 45,000 reports of serious side effects from women who had used the Mirena IUD device. Our defective medical product law firm is investigating potential lawsuits to obtain financial recovery for women who have been injured by the Mirena IUD.
Mirena Manufacturer Bayer’s Misleading Advertising
Bayer, the manufacturer of the Mirena IUD, promoted the device as safe and hassle free form of contraception. The company undertook a massive direct-to-consumer marketing campaign (TV ads, social media, etc.) targeting “busy moms” seeking a “simple” and “easy” contraceptive method. However, reports indicate women were misled about the device’s features and side effects, including the risks of health complications such as infertility associated with the device. These types of deceptive and misleading ad campaigns that failed to disclose important health risks are a key component of product liability lawsuits against Bayer.
