SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — A Sioux Falls woman filed a lawsuit against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals claiming that her Mirena IUD needed surgical removal after becoming lodged in her pelvic cavity, according to the Argus Leader.
The lawsuit claims that Bayer intentionally hid the health risks of the IUD which is typically used to prevent pregnancy for five years.
Nicole Hemme, the victim in question, stated in her lawsuit that:
“Mirena’s label does not warn about spontaneous migration of the IUD, but only states that migration may occur if the uterus is perforated during the insertion.”
However, while evidence has mounted against Bayer and their Mirena branded IUD, “the company does defend itself vigorously against these claims.”
Mirena IUD was approved in 2000 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and has effected over 15 million women with 2 million active users.
Due to the large number of lawsuits, most have been consolidated into a civil action in the Southern District of New York. These cases are seeking compensation for lost wages, medical bills, and additionally punitive damages.
