The Mirena IUD can slice through a woman’s uterus and travel into her abdomen at any time after it’s implanted. This painful and dangerous situation can leave permanent damage, and some people didn’t know of this Mirena side effect until it happened to them. Mirena users can protect their health and legal rights if they know the signs of migration and how to act quickly if they occur.
- Abdominal or pelvic pain
- Spotting or bleeding
- Blood in the urine
- Recurrent urinary tract infections
At the first signs of migration, Mirena users should seek medical help immediately. A doctor will be able to determine whether the IUD is in the uterus or embedded in the uterine wall. If Mirena has migrated through the uterus and into the abdomen, an ultrasound or X-ray will help locate it. In this case, removal surgery is necessary.
Many women are filing Mirena lawsuits because Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals failed to provide warnings that their IUD can migrate long after its implantation in the body. Contact Mirena lawyer Gregory Spizer today to discuss what happened. He has led numerous cases involving dangerous drugs, and as Co-Chairman of the Mass Tort Department at the Anapol Schwartz law firm, he is highly qualified to represent you.
