Mirena Side Effects

After a doctor implanted Mirena and a follow-up visit showed that everything was OK, you expected your birth control to work like it’s supposed to. Instead, you’re facing surgery after the implant moved where it doesn’t belong.

Mirena is a long-acting method of birth control called an intrauterine device (IUD). A health care provider implants the tiny T-shaped device in the uterus, where it releases small doses of hormones into the bloodstream for up to five years. More than two million women in the U.S. use Mirena as a contraceptive or treatment for heavy menstrual bleeding.

Side Effects of Mirena

  • Uterus or cervix perforation
  • Movement into the body
  • Embedment in the uterine wall
  • Pregnancy in the fallopian tube
  • Sepsis

Mirena complications can be very serious. At any time, Mirena can cut through the uterus, embed in the uterine wall, omentum, liver, bladder and other organs, and cause deadly infections. Removal of Mirena requires surgery in these cases, but doctors must first find it, which can be painful for you.
