One of the most serious complications in using the popular IUD, Mirena, is organ perforation.

IUDs or intrauterine devices are popular forms of long-term birth control. These small plastic or copper t-shaped devices are inserted into the uterus. They slowly release contraceptive hormones. IUDs are said to provide birth control for up to five years. Mirena is manufactured by Bayer and is one of two IUDs available for sale in the United States.

While these devices have been quite successful at providing reliable contraception, they suffer from one major drawback: thousands of women have learned the hard way that IUDs have the tendency to move out of place. This is known as migration.

Problems Associated with Migration

This seemingly innocuous problem actually can cause serious health problems for women. When the IUD moves or is expelled from the uterus it can poke through neighboring organs and cause organ perforation. Organ perforation via IUD most typically occurs when the device pokes through the walls of the uterus. Symptoms of organ perforation by an IUD are as follows:

  • Heavy bleeding
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Severe abdominal pain
  • Blood in urine or stool
  • Fever
  • Chills
  • Infections
  • Adhesions
  • Irregular periods
  • Internal hemorrhaging
  • Irregular periods
  • Unwanted pregnancies

When organ perforation happens it not only can cause the immediate physical problems mentioned above, but it also can cause more serious long-term issues such as uterine scarring, uterine tearing, miscarriages, pelvic inflammatory disease, abscesses, ectopic pregnancy, and infertility.

If you or a loved one is suffering health complications after having an IUD such as Mirena implanted, please contact your doctor and an experienced attorney.
