Mirena Side Effects & Lawyers Who Handle Mirena Lawsuit Cases

If you happen to be reading this blog, you are probably already familiar with Mirena.  In short, Mirena is a birth control device manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals.  It consists of a small, T-shaped container of flexible plastic that discharges constant doses of a hormone, levonorgesterel.  Levonorgestrel thickens the wall of mucous lining the uterus and decreases the chances of pregnancy.

The Mirena intrauterine device (IUD) had its beginning in Europe in 1991.  It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000. Since then, there have been nearly 60,000 complaints made about Mirena to the FDA.  The complaints range from to vaginal hemorrhage or bleeding.

Litigation against Bayer – The Mirena Lawsuit

Lawsuits against Bayer Pharmaceuticals for Mirena are becoming plentiful.  The lawsuits allege that Bayer Pharmaceuticals:

  • Misrepresented the benefits of Mirena.
  • Concealed dangerous side effects of Mirena.
  • Failed to warn about the possibility of spontaneous migration of the device.
  • Deceptively marketed Mirena.
  • Manufactured and distributed a defective product that they knew or should have known about.
