Attorneys are currently investigating claims on behalf of women who believe that they suffered serious or life-threatening complications after using Mirena.
Mirena is a small T-shaped plastic hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) that is inserted into the uterus for long-term birth control. It releases a type of progestin and thickens the cervical mucus to prevent sperm from reaching or fertilizing an egg. Mirena also thins the lining of the uterus and partially suppresses ovulation. Mirena lasts as long as you want for up to 5 years and is recommended for women who have had a child. It is the only hormonal IUD that has the Food and Drug Administration approval.
Some women using Mirena may experience minor to severe side effects, even death. Some of the reported side effects are infertility, internal inflammation, birth of a child with birth defect, embedment in the uterus, pelvic inflammatory disease, and many others.
If you or a loved one has suffered side effects after using Mirena, you may be eligible to receive compensation for your injuries. Contact the helpful legal team at George Sink Injury lawyers today! Call for a free, no obligation legal consult. Our injury hotline is open 24/7!
