Mirena Led to Miscarriage, Hysterectomy

. By
Portland, ORMore than 800 Mirena lawsuits throughout the US have been filed by women claiming injuries caused by migration of the IUD. Recently, a number of women believe Mirena side effects have led to miscarriage, and in severe cases, hysterectomy.

Mirena lawsuits claim that Bayer, the Mirena manufacturer, failed to warn women that the device had the risk of spontaneous migration. Instead, Bayer warned that migration could only occur with Mirena uterine perforation upon insertion of the IUD. In other words, Bayer is trying to blame the physician. For many women who may never be able to have children again after the Mirena was removed, Bayer’s explanation just adds insult to injury.

Susan says she is more fortunate than some women who don’t have any children. She had three normal pregnancies and three healthy children. After her third, she had the Mirena inserted but it had to be taken out after two years due to severe pelvic pain and cramping. “I recently got pregnant and had a horrible miscarriage. This was the first time I ever saw so much blood, and I endured so much pain, but the mental anguish is ongoing,” she says.
“My husband believes that Mirena plays a huge role in my miscarriage.”


Jackie, age 37, doesn’t have children. She had the Mirena inserted a year ago to help with heavy menstruation. She endured continual heavy bleeding, cramping and clotting, but her gynecologist said that was normal and to give it some time. “Last month I couldn’t take it anymore and booked an emergency appointment to have it removed,” says Jackie. “My doctor couldn’t find the Mirena so he sent me for an ultrasound - they found the IUD in my uterus but hidden behind a huge fibroid.”

The Mirena had not perforated her uterus, but it had caused irreparable damage.

A few days later Jackie’s gynecologist phoned - with the worst news. “He told me the fibroid was so huge that I would need a hysterectomy,” says Jackie, crying. “I asked him if this happened because of the IUD but he was cagey and wouldn’t come right out and say so, but he didn’t say no either. I believe he is worried about a medical malpractice suit but I’m not blaming him. He said there could be a lot of reasons, but the only way to get this Mirena out of my uterus is to have an abdominal hysterectomy to remove my uterus and cervix.

“My surgery is scheduled for next month but I am trying to get a second opinion. Meanwhile, I’ve booked time off work - thankfully, my boss understands and I have a job to come back to. Although I have health insurance that covers most of the surgery, I won’t have an income for almost two months; that is when I made inquiries about a Mirena lawsuit.”

“I filed a Mirena claim with LaywersandSettlements after reading a story about a woman whose pap test showed abnormal cells on her cervix that was caused by the Mirena,” says Angela. “I had my Mirena removed two years ago and six months later my pap test came back with abnormal cells - I had always had a clean bill of health. I had to get a cone biopsy of my cervix. Last November my husband and I were ecstatic with the news that I was pregnant; we were planning on having a family. But last month I had a miscarriage - we lost our baby.

“I have heard many stories of women losing a baby during gestation after they had a Mirena removed. I had to get a D&C and after that a hysterectomy. I need to know if Mirena caused my hysterectomy as well as the loss of my baby.”

I had the mirena iud for almost 4 years after my first and only son. I never had a period with the mirena. Suddenly I found out I was pregnant when I went to the emergency room. Then a couple weeks later I started bleeding. I went to the er and they said that I was miss carrying my baby. I went to my obgyn that put my mirena in and he gave me an ultra sound and a pill called metroprolol to help me miss carry the baby. I asked him if it was due because of the mirena and he did not have a straight answer . I have now been trying to get pregnant for a year and no luck , I'm only 22 and want more kids .
