Missouri woman claims Mirena® IUD migrated, led to serious injuries and emergency surgery

Filed December 19th, 2012 Joshua Sophy

A Missouri woman is the latest to claim that she suffered serious and permanent injuries caused by the Mirena® IUD contraceptive device.

The woman is joining the legal fight against the makers of this contraceptive device by filing a lawsuit against Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals claiming the company hid evidence from the public that showed the dangerous side effects of the devices.

The Missouri woman claims she received Mirena® IUD during a procedure in 2009 but by the end of 2010 had begun experiencing complications that are consistent among women who’ve had bad experiences with the contraceptive device. An ultrasound showed that the contraceptive device that’s supposed to stay implanted for up to five years, has migrated outside the uterus.

The Mirena® IUD had to be removed via an emergency laproscopic surgery.

The lawsuit against Bayer seeks damages for concealing safety data and hiding the side effects of Mirena® IUD and for pain and suffering, the unexpected and avoidable medical costs, and other costs associated with the complications caused by the device.

Like a social network, the “Simple Style” marketing campaign was targeted at women who’ve already had one child and were looking to stay active while avoiding pregnancy. It attempted to have women share their success stories while using the Bayer device, all while downplaying the side effects that were commonly associated with it.
