Since the release of Bayer Inc.’s Mirena IUD product, there has been uproar in legal and medical controversy over all the dangerous side effects that are associated with it. The Mirena IUD is essentially an intrauterine contraception device that acts in place of birth control. It is directly inserted through the vagina and into the uterus. Bayer has been accused of using deceptive marketing tactics by telling women that they would “look and feel great,” and have an increased level of intimacy with their spouse or partner. This idea of an improved lifestyle tricked many women into trying the product, yet many were unaware of the numerous health risks and dangers that it can cause to users.
Today, nearly 160 million women use the IUD as their primary source of birth control. Many of the users already have children and use this product to avoid getting pregnant again and the pill is just too inconvenient with their busy lives. In 2009, the FDA issued a Warning Letter informing users that Bayer had withheld important information from the public about the risky side effects. Since then, the FDA has received an alarming number of complaints from women who are using the Mirena IUD device. Even now however, around half of the physician s and M.D.s are unaware of the risks associated with the IUD product.
Many women have come forward sharing that they have experienced painful side effects allegedly caused by the Mirena IUD. One of the most alarming side effects is many women who have become pregnant while using Mirena have either suffered a miscarriage or have given birth to children with birth defects. Since then many law firms have dedicated special hotlines for women to call in if they believe they could be entitled to compensation for the conditions that they suffered because of the IUD.
