Losing baby weight after giving birth is hard for anyone – but it may be even harder for women who have had a Mirena IUD implanted. According to some testimonials, women who have the Mirena IUD placed can end up with bloating so severe that they appear to be in the late stages of pregnancy. These allegations are just a few in the slew of complications that have been reported by several women who have had the popular progestin intrauterine device implanted as a form of contraception.
Side Effects of the Mirena IUD
The Mirena IUD has become popular because it can be implanted and left for up to 5 years without additional maintenance, but it can also wreak havoc during that time. The IUD has been linked to bloating, general discomfort and pain, bleeding, abnormal vaginal discharge, low levels of iron, changes in hair growth, swelling of extremities and dizziness. More concerning, it has also been linked to ovarian cysts, ovulation and ectopic pregnancy, meaning that the fertilized egg is implanted somewhere where it should not be implanted, such as in the fallopian tubes. An ectopic pregnancy can be extremely painful and can result in a miscarriage and even infertility in some instances.
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration had initially approved the Mirena IUD for use as a form of birth control in 2000, but they have also issued a warning in 2008 listing several complications that have been linked to the IUD including perforation, ovarian cysts, breast cancer, intrauterine (regular) pregnancy and congenital defects.
Mirena IUD Lawsuits
Women who have experienced some of the negative side effects of the Mirena IUD have begun to file lawsuits against the IUD’s manufacturer, Bayer Pharmaceuticals. The lawsuits allege that the plaintiffs suffered injuries as the result of having the Mirena IUD implanted and that Bayer knew or should have known about the serious – and potentially even fatal – side effects that could result from using their IUD and that they failed to warn the public and the patients about these severe complications.
