Mirena Perforation & Migration Injury Lawsuit

mirena-iud-lawsuits-free-brochure-banner-170x250View in Spanish The Mirena IUD, manufactured by Bayer, is a hormone-emitting birth control device inserted into the uterus through the vagina. It has been identified as a possible cause of uterine wall perforations, pelvic inflammatory disease, and other dangerous conditions. Plaintiffs in Mirena lawsuits have indicated they have even experienced the migration of the IUD from their uteruses to other parts of their bodies, such as the liver and the rib cage. To date, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration has received more than 70,000 adverse event reports regarding the Mirena IUD.

Mirena Lawsuit Settlements

Mirena IUD lawsuits are in early stages. Many in state and federal court are being consolidated to speed up pretrial proceedings, providing for them to reach a trial or settlement more efficiently than if efforts such as discovery (document sharing) are duplicated for each individual case. There are currently no reports yet of settlements, though the consolidations are moving along in places such as New Jersey Supreme Court and in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York.

    I've just recently had my mirena taken this past year, but the 3 years I did have it was nothing but pain and discomfort. I had extreme abdominal pains, and shocking sensations. I found out few months prior to getting it removed that I had pelvic inflammatory disease and when it came time have it taken out for the fact I couldn't deal without the pain nor could I get rid of the many infections. Obgyne alarmed me that it was imbedded into my tubes which cause scaring. So now I might not be able to have kids. I would never recommend any female of any age for any reason to get this evil thing.

    I got the mirena in June 2010, and at first it was fine but after maybe 6mos or so I began experiencing irregular periods, like some months I'll bleed once lasting for more than 10days, sometimes twice in a month and other months I don't bleed at all. I have very little energy and super sensitive to everything. I experience lower abdominal pain, continuously, and the pain intensifies after and during sex. Recently I've been diagnosed with PID and with having ovarian cysts. Just this past weekend I was rushed to the ER, again, because I was experiencing the most excruciating pain I've ever felt(and I've had 3 children), I couldn't move without sharp agonizing pains springing thru my lower abdominal and pelvic areas. I have had false positives on pregnancy tests and 1 miscarriage. And now my man is afraid to have sex with me because he fears he will hurt me again... Yeah, this thing has got to go. I mean I can't afford another kid right now but with all of the health issues, at this point, a child would be easier.

    I had the mirena placed in December 2010. After my second son was born, it was the most painful thing I have ever experienced. I had the implant and gained 100 pounds and literally went nuts on that. So in comparison to that, my doctor said the benefits way out weighted the risks. I took his word..so I hoped the pain would be worth having a great birth control. 6 weeks later, I came in for the check up to make sure it was placed correctly...well the doctor checked for the string and could not feel it so he ordered an ultrasound. He did not find the IUD in my uterus and he claimed it must have came out on its own... (In my mind I'm like there is no way that came out I would notice something like that...) so he sent me on my way with the nuva ring in hand.... My husband is in the Air Force so a few weeks later we were stationed on a AB in japan. A month later I came down with a random kidney stone... They do a cat scan and come back and tell me that the kidney stone will pass but... yep you guessed it, they ask me if I have ever had an iud... and I tell them well I HAD one and the doctor claimed it came out. The doctor looks and me and says "well we found it" its lodged in your stomach. So all and all with all the nightmares with having birth control, I decide its not worth it and I got fixed the same time I was getting it removed... Two kids surgery and being in a different country... worst time of my life.

    I have had the IUD for 4 1/2 years. I had to go to another doctor to have it placed because my doctor didn't do it at the time. I was never scheduled for any follow up appointments and checked the strings only occasionally. About 2 1/2 years, I started having terrible pain throughout my body similar to Fibromyalgia. I was actually diagnosed 3 times with Fibro but refused to take that as the answer because none of the treatments were helping. I finally found a doctor who did a complete work up on me and discovered that the hormones from the IUD were the cause of my problem! I tried to get it removed last week and now I discover I'm in for a whole new nightmare..... The doctor can't find it! I just had an ultrasound today and the tech said it looks like it is broken, she can't put the two pieces together in the ultrasound. Looks like I am headed towards surgery.

    I have had Mirena for three years, since after my daughter was born. Within the first month of getting it, it fell out, but, I had it put back in. For the first six months, I had irregular bleeding, spotting all month, but that eventually faded to practically nothing. For two years, I haven't had regular periods, though I do get them randomly a couple times a year. I suffer from abdominal pain in my lower belly, and have had numerous tests to try and find out why, with no answers being told to me. It has effected my sex life and the positions I can take with my husband, as well as how I play with my kids. I can't afford to get it removed, as my husband and I can't afford another child and regular birth control is too expensive. When he saw this, he thought it would be something for me to look into.

    I have had mirena for maybe 4 years now. For the first year, I went from a size 5 to a size 12, and was extremely emotional. Did I "look and feel great"? NO!!! I couldn't keep the weight off no matter what I did. After a year, I went down to my regular weight. But that's just the beginning.

    Honestly, for the past 3 years or so, I've just given up. I thought I was hopeless. I got the IUD to help with endometriosis. I had horrible bleeding and occasional pain. 4 years after mirena, I live on energy drinks because the caffeine keeps the CONSTANT, DEBILITATING cramps at bay. I have heart palpitations because of the caffeine I have to drink (its the only thing that helps). If I sit for too long, it feels like something is tearing my insides. Sex has slowly become intolerable. My boyfriend and I have both noticed that my uterus seems to be dropping. Intercourse feels like being punched in the stomach unless he stays really shallow. We have to constantly work to keep sex within a tolerable pain threshold. Stretching, numbing, etc... its ridiculous. And then afterwards, I usually bleed for about a week. If all of that isn't enough, having an orgasm gives me such horrible cramps, I have found almost nothing to remedy.

    As the problems began to pile and no doctor offered any solution, I began to think I would never have a pleasant sex-life again. I am 26 years old. That is a sad conclusion to come to at my age.

    I have had the mirena since June 2010 when I got my six weeks check up. I have had issues since then. I have severe pain where I have to use a heating pad to soothe the pain, my period stays on for two to three weeks at a time and some months it doesn't come at all, my desire to be intimate with my husband is no longer there. I have expressed the issues with my doctor and I was just given meds for the pain. Right now I'm in the process of waiting to see my doctor because I can't deal with the issues anymore. It seems as if things are not getting any better, it's getting worse lately. I thought the mirena was a good option but from what I'm experiencing this is a nightmare.

    I had a Mirena IUD placed in May 2012 after I was having continual but manageable bleeding after having my daughter in November. I had it placed and went home. The bleeding seemed to cease after a day or so. I was happy that something finally worked... Until I woke up in the middle of the night with extreme abdominal pain. I went to the bathroom and was bleeding heavily. It looked as if I had been stabbed. I called the doctor, they said abnormal bleeding is normal with this after having the IUD placed. So this continued for about 3 days -- after I couldn't walk, my boyfriend made me go in to the hospital. After having an ultrasound, it showed that the IUD had lodged itself into my cervix and my uterus. They asked me repeatedly if I had had sex. The answer was no -- I could barely move, let alone have sex after the thing was put in. They had to take it out -- that was a nightmare as well. I am still bleeding continually and I fully believe that its from puncturing my cervix.

    I've had my IUD since 2/24/2009. I was in pain fire the first month of placement. I didn't get it removed because I thought it was just a small side affect. Now I suffer with random pains on my side and bottom of my stomach. My period is far from normal. I may bled for two days, and I might bleed for a week and spot for three days. I've gained weight in my mid section, suffer with random mood swings and depression.

    I have had my Mirena now for almost two years now. I have gained so much weight and have no sex drive. I have spoke to my doctor about this and he said its normal and not much he can do about it. I have had to have the strings cut due to my husband saying its extremely painful for him during intercourse. When we have sex it also hurts me like a stabbing sensation. Not sure if I should go get it removed now or not.

    Are these law suits just for the women who had the iud implanted before 2009? I got mine implanted in march of 2010 and I had some pretty bad experiences with it. I feel I had some pretty bad side effects, I feel I had some bad side effects of it. It started to have some extreme pain coming from my abdomen after a year and a half of having it put in. After 2 months of this, I decided to go to the ER and had some ultra sounds done including a 3D one. The doctor then called me 2 days later and told me that the iud was slightly imbedded in my uterine wall but it was so slightly that it was nothing to be concerned about. After a year and a half of experiencing other side effects of the iud ; including depression, loss of sex drive, weight gain, extreme acne, cervical cysts, anxiety, loss of energy and then the pain started. I then decided I wanted it removed. By this time I had lost my insurance and called around to see who could remove this iud. NO ONE WOULD REMOVE IT. And the ones who would wants to charge me a minimum of 180$ and a maximum of $300 to remove it. Was a single mother of twins who with no job and barely making it day to day. I did not have that kind of money. After 2 weeks of trying to find someone who could remove the iud I came up empty and decided to remove it my self. I could not take the pain I was in and wanted it out of me!! I had no complications pulling it out and today all my symptoms are gone. Except the scaring on my face from the extreme acne it caused me to have. Everything went back to normal about 4 months after I removed it. I still have the iud today just in case something were to ever come up like this. I was just wondering if u can give me some incite on this situation.

    iud has been nothing but misery since the first day. I had my period for the first 6 months in insertion, and in which the doctors tell you that's normal. But well after 2 years and I bleed at least 2 days out of every week (on a good week) sex drive has totally declined as well as painful sex sharp stabbing pains. I could always bare the cramping by taking a motrin or something when I got my periods but after mirena its not even cramping its a pain that hurts at time that you can't even release urine (not a uti) cause I'll feel the pain on my lower left abdomen. I want to get the iud removed but now I'm going for xrays to FIND WHERE IT IS!

    I had mirena placed in August 2011. When the iud was placed I had severe pain from placement. I was unable to even drive myself home and my husband had to come pick me up from the hospital. I suffered with this pain for three weeks. After this I had bad pain once a month. In September 2012, the pain became more intense. In October 2012, the pain sent me to the emergency room and I was diagnosed with pelvic inflammatory disease and cysts on cervix. I had the mirena removed on October 23, 2012. With in a day the pain was 100% gone.

    I received the mirena in January of 2012. From then till late September I bleed constantly. I am constantly having cramps and also pressure in my lower abdomen area. I have went to the doctors about the bleeding and cramps, but they would not remove the iud. I also begin to believe that its causing a bacterial infection of some kind because ever sense I had the iud placed, there is has been a foul smell and a really think gooey discharge.

    I have had mirena twice and have only ever had complications. I first began having ovarian cysts after the first one. It actually moved and they had to do surgery to the point of completely putting me under in order to remove it. I got a second one about 6 yrs later. The entire time of almost 7-8 months...I did not stop bleeding. They tried to tell me it was my hormones, and had me taking medications to make it stop. After I had them remove the second one; all problems stopped! Can I file a claim?

    I had the Mirena put in 6 weeks after I had my daughter almost 1 1/2 years ago. The doctor checked via u/s to make sure the IUD was positioned correctly and it was. I returned 6 wks later to have a check up to make sure the IUD was still in place. The doctor examined me and she couldn't feel the strings, so she sent me to u/s to check to see if it was still there. It was nowhere in my uterus. I then went in a few days later for a procedure to blow my uterus up with saline to see if they could find the IUD hiding anywhere....it was nowhere. They then sent me for a ct scan. The radiologist did the ct scan and asked me afterwards if I drank something to cause a glow. Because they saw something....but they never checked to see what it was. One year later I was having difficulty with my bowels and discomfort in my belly. I thought it was my appendix. Went to the dr and he sent me to the ER for another ct scan. They located what was causing my pain and discomfort. They found my Mirena! It had punctured through my uterus and embedded its self in my bowels. It was located above and to the right of my belly button (where my appendix is). Needless to say I had to have a emergency surgery that next day to have it removed.

    I have had the mirena IUD now since march, I have had to deal with since then many bad mood swings where I will be extremely angry and don't even know why also I have had to deal with severe depression which comes and goes. I have been extremely fatigued and my periods will not stop for more than a week. I am on my period all the time apart from about a week maybe once a month if I'm lucky. I am always in alot of discomfort with it. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't regret having this put in, to top it off no one told me about any side effects that this would have on me or any of the risks... I have been waiting for over two months now to get back in to see the surgeon that put it in to have it removed but still haven't heard anything yet.

    I had my Mirena IUD after I had my son in March. I had it placed in April. Since then I've had no periods some months and other months I will bleed for 2 weeks, I've had pain in the bottom of my stomach, I've gained weight on it, and all the fat is building around my mid-section on my stomach. I have no energy. Now, for the first time I have an irregular pap (and not to mention, I just had one when I was pregnant and it was fine, now 6 months after getting the IUD it's irregular). I will go get that checked this coming up week.... A few weeks ago when I went to the doctor, she thought that maybe I had a cysts rupture inside but never once told me that the IUD could be causing this. This thing is awful!

    I Have had mirena in about a year and I have extremely irregular bleeding and pain in my abdomen almost everyday. And my sex life has declined drastically because my boyfriend and father of my two children complains constantly about being poked and having sharp pains when we would have sex. We recently agreed that I should just get the IUD removed but just cant afford another child.
