Contact Attorney Group for Kansas today to learn more about your options and about whether you may be eligible to file a Kansas Mirena lawsuit to seek compensation for your injuries.
The Mirena IUD must be inserted into a woman’s uterus by a licensed physician. After the device is in place, it begins to release progesterone, a hormone that is believed to thin the uterine lining and reduce the chance that sperm will reach and subsequently fertilize an egg. Additionally, the device may also inhibit ovulation so that the woman does not release an egg at all.
After five years, Mirena must be removed. At this time, the woman may decide whether she would like to have another inserted. While many women enjoy not having to take a pill or weekly injection, others claim that the implant caused severe complications, including:
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Pelvic inflammatory disease
- Organ damage
- Obstructions or perforations of the intestines
- Embedment in the uterine wall
Women who have experienced one or more of these side effects may consider filing a Kansas Mirena lawsuit to seek compensation for their injuries. In addition to these complications, many women throughout the U.S. claim that Bayer used aggressive and misleading marketing tactics in order to sell the device. The FDA issued a letter to Bayer in 2009, requiring that Bayer rework its commercials and advertisements to more adequately represent the IUD.
The FDA asserted that the manufacturer wrongly marketed the device to “busy moms,” claiming that Mirena could help improve a woman’s sex life and make her feel and look great. According to the FDA, Bayer had no scientific evidence to back up these claims. Bayer also allegedly used music and other techniques in its commercials to draw the viewer’s attention to the benefits of the IUD while simultaneously downplaying the risks.
