Complications of the Mirena Intrauterine Device
The FDA approved the Mirena as an intrauterine contraceptive for women who have already been through childbirth. This device is intended to work for five years by giving the uterus low levels of progestogen levonorgestrel chemical to prevent conception. Unfortunately, Mirena users have experienced many ill side effects such as bleeding, headaches, menstrual pain, ovarian cysts, breast tenderness, vaginits and even more serious effects such as ectopic pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease (PVD), group A streptococcal sepsis and some users have still gotten pregnant with the device in place, which could lead to miscarriage and infertility. Those side effects can be traumatic enough, but an even more serious possible complication is perforation of the uterus, which can then travel into the abdomen and puncture organs such as the bladder or the intestines. Complications could include obstruction of the intestines, infections, internal scars and adhesions and in the event that perforation did occur, surgery has to be performed to remove the Mirena intrauterine device. In some cases where the damage is too severe, there is the possibility that a hysterectomy has to be performed. If this is the case, you need to speak with an Alabama Attorney today about your potential Alabama Mirena IUD Lawsuit.
