Kentucky Woman Files Lawsuit Against Bayer, Charging its Mirena IUD Harmed Her

Filed June 24th, 2013 edlieber1

A Kentucky woman represented by the national law firm Parker Waichman LLP has filed a lawsuit against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, alleging that its Mirena IUD contraceptive injured her.

Lawsuits have piled up against Bayer in recent years as the reports of injuries connected to the birth control product continue to increase. According to the U.S. Food and drug administration (FDA), the most serious side effects associated with the Mirena IUD include: perforation of the uterine wall, embedment of the device in the uterine wall, intrauterine pregnancy, ectopic pregnancy, Group A streptococcal sepsis, and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).

According to the lawsuit, the woman was implanted with the Mirena IUD in April 2011. In May 2012, she went to her doctor’s office for a follow-up exam, but her doctor was unable to see the IUD’s strings. He ordered an X-ray, which found that the Mirena IUD had migrated outside of her uterus. Later that month, the woman underwent diagnostic laparoscopy to have the IUD removed; it had been found with the fimbriated end adhering to the right fallopian tube.

The woman is suing for severe and permanent physical injuries, substantial pain and suffering, and economic loss due to medical expenses and lost wages. The lawsuit alleges that Bayer knew that the Mirena IUD was defective but had failed to warn of the risks.
