What Are Complications Of Mirena IUD?
The Mirena IUD implant has been the cause of numerous health problems in women since its introduction to the market in 2000.
Complications include internal bleeding, ectopic pregnancy, infertility after the device has been removed, and uterine perforation. Many of these complications can be life-threatening and require immediate medical attention to correct.
Can Mirena IUD Cause Internal Bleeding?
In some cases, the implantation of the Mirena IUD is initially successful however as time progresses, the device can migrate from its intended location and damage other areas inside the body. This can lead to pain, internal bleeding and infection. Sometimes, emergency surgery is required to correct this issue.
Symptoms of internal bleeding include but are not limited to:
- Abdominal pain and swelling
- Chest pain
- Skin color changes that occur several days after an injury (skin color may be black, blue, purple, yellowish green)
Please contact your doctor if you notice any of these symptoms or feel like you are bleeding internally.
Does Mirena IUD Cause Ectopic Pregnancy?
Ectopic pregnancy is a condition where the a woman becomes pregnant by means of the egg being fertilized outside of the uterus. f you get pregnant while using Mirena, you may have an ectopic pregnancy. This condition is sometimes referred to as tubal pregnancy, because many times the fertilized egg is located inside the fallopian tubes. Ectopic pregnancy is life-threatening to women and requires surgery to correct.
Unusual vaginal bleeding or abdominal pain may be a sign of ectopic pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy can cause internal bleeding, infertility, and even death.
Does Mirena IUD Cause Infertility?
Many women have experienced infertility after the Mirena IUD has been removed. This can be caused by a number of different reasons. Damage to the woman’s reproductive organs can cause permanent infertility. Additionally, if a woman suffers from an ectopic pregnancy and undergoes surgery to correct it, it can cause her to become infertile.
Even if no other complications are reported while the device is implanted, some woman have claimed they cannot become pregnant after removal of the device. Lawsuits have been filed for this defective device.
Can Mirena IUD Cause Uterine Perforation?
Uterine perforation is a serious condition associated with the Mirena IUD implant. Over time, the device can dislodge from its implanted location and migrate to other areas of the body. Women have experienced serious uterine perforation as a result of this. Uterine damage can lead to other complications such as internal bleeding, and infertility.
Mirena organ perforation is most commonly seen in the uterus but once it has fully penetrated the uterus, the IUD can migrate easily. In addition to uterine perforation, some women have had additional organ perforation or involvement in the cervix, fallopian tubes, and abdominal organs such as the bladder or intestines.
