The Mirena lawsuit is part of a larger group of lawsuits filed against the makers of Mirena contraceptive devices. The manufacturer of the Mirena IUD, the Progestogen IUD, and the Diaphragm Mirena condom also manufactures another product called Clomid. As of August 2021, according to the FDA, approximately six thousand and four hundred women have filed Mirena lawsuit against the other manufacturers of contraceptives. At this time, no one has filed a lawsuit against the manufacturer of the original Mirena IUD. Therefore, for the purposes of this article we will focus on the complaint filed by the Class of 2021, the plaintiff class, which is made up of all women who received a diagnosis of having a sexually transmitted disease or experienced an unexpected loss of fertility.

As with any drug, there are possible side effects of Mirena, and women should be aware of those risks and be informed accordingly. The Mirena IUD (intrauterine device) has been known to cause severe Mirena complications, such as uterine perforation and device migration into the fallopian tubes, as well as, serious, irreversible side effects. Many plaintiffs of Mirena childbirth control have already filed Mirena lawsuit alleging that Bayer Healthcare, the company that markets the Mirena IUD, was aware of these risks and did nothing to warn women of these issues. In fact, in January of 2021, the FDA sent a letter to the company, stating that they had received “numerous reports” regarding the problems that had been noted with Mirena. Most of the problems cited in the letters were failures in the device’s ability to prevent fertilization and /or conception.

Plaintiffs have alleged that because the manufacturer knew of these issues but failed to take action to correct the situation, that they in turn, have a constitutional right to seek monetary damages for their injuries and other losses. This is not only true of direct injuries, but also indirect injuries and suffering, as most of these plaintiffs will receive treatment for such problems as chronic pelvic pain, infertility, and loss of sexual desire. While the class of plaintiffs is relatively small at this point, the court may ultimately determine that the entire class of plaintiffs should be allowed to file Mirena lawsuit against the manufacturer of the product responsible for the product liability lawsuits. The class action is highly likely to appeal the courts ruling allowing class members to file suits on their own.

Some argue that if these products pose a threat to a woman’s health, then it should be assumed that they will also pose a threat to a fetus if improperly inserted during pregnancy. The plaintiffs have also alleged that they were injured because the drugs inserted during medical procedures contained lead and maldecystatin, both known human carcinogens. This side effect has not been widely publicized in the media, despite the plaintiffs request for more publicity.

Mirena lawsuit is being driven by two separate groups of plaintiffs. One group is those who believe that the drugs are dangerous and that women must be prevented from using them while the second group is those who feel that the drugs are safe, especially for use during pregnancy. There is a possibility that the lead and maldecystatin mentioned in the lawsuit could have caused lead to be present in the blood stream of fetuses. If this were the case, it is possible that some fetuses could have serious birth defects. While there is a possibility that the lead can cause IDiopathic Intracranial Hypertension, the facts as to whether or not this is in fact the case, is still unclear.

It has also been claimed that the effects of Mirena lawsuit may be harmful to those who are trying to become pregnant, since the drugs can suppress ovulation and prevent fertilization. Mirena lawsuit is being contested vigorously by the manufacturers of the drug, Teva, and the pharmaceutical companies that made Mirena. Many doctors believe that the possible life-threatening consequences are overstated, and that the claims of life-threatening conditions, such as IDiopathic Intracranial Hypertension, are merely exaggerating scare tactics. The manufacturer of Mirena has released a new version of their birth control pill called Mintygo, which may also be linked to the formation of pseudo-tubular scars, a condition which many physicians believe is related to the development of pseudo-tubular scars.
