Bayer Sued for Mirena IUD Birth Control Complications

Nine women have filed a lawsuit in California federal court against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals Inc. alleging complications related to its birth control device, Mirena IUD.

Mirena is designed to be inserted into the uterus by a physician to prevent pregnancy through hormonal actions and can remain in place for up to five years. The lawsuit itself does not discuss the details of the plaintiffs’ injuries but other lawsuits and complaints have listed several alleged complications with the device. Among these are claims that the device can perforate the uterus or punch its way through the walls of the organ and cause damage to other organs of the pelvis and abdomen. Other alleged complications include permanent damage to the reproductive systems that can cause sterility.

The litigation against Bayer over the Mirena IUD has taken the form of a multidistrict litigation comprising of hundreds of individual Mirena lawsuits filed across the country.

If you or someone you know has suffered injury as a result of a defective product, please contact Khorrami Boucher, LLP for a private consultation.
