Mirena SIde Effects Led to Miscarriage

More than 800 Mirena lawsuits throughout the US have been filed by women claiming injuries caused by migration of the IUD. Recently, a number of women believe Mirena side effects have led to miscarriage, and in severe cases, hysterectomy.

Mirena Led to Miscarriage, Hysterectomy Mirena lawsuits claim that Bayer, the Mirena manufacturer,  failed to  warn women that the device had the risk of  spontaneous migration.  Instead, Bayer warned that migration  could only occur with Mirena  uterine perforation upon insertion  of the IUD. In other words, Bayer is  trying to blame the  physician. For many women who may never be able  to have  children again after the Mirena was removed, Bayer’s    explanation just adds insult to injury.


Susan says she is more fortunate than some women who don’t have any children. She had three normal pregnancies and three healthy children. After her third, she had the Mirena inserted but it had to be taken out after two years due to severe pelvic pain and cramping. “I recently got pregnant and had a horrible miscarriage. This was the first time I ever saw so much blood, and I endured so much pain, but the mental anguish is ongoing,” she says. 
“My husband believes that Mirena plays a huge role in my miscarriage.”

Jackie, age 37, doesn’t have children. She had the Mirena inserted a year ago to help with heavy menstruation. She endured continual heavy bleeding, cramping and clotting, but her gynecologist said that was normal and to give it some time. “Last month I couldn’t take it anymore and booked an emergency appointment to have it removed,” says Jackie. “My doctor couldn't find the Mirena so he sent me for an ultrasound - they found the IUD in my uterus but hidden behind a huge fibroid.”

The Mirena had not perforated her uterus, but it had caused irreparable damage.

A few days later Jackie’s gynecologist phoned - with the worst news. “He told me the fibroid was so huge that I would need a hysterectomy,” says Jackie, crying. “I asked him if this happened because of the IUD but he was cagey and wouldn’t come right out and say so, but he didn’t say no either. I believe he is worried about a medical malpractice suit but I’m not blaming him. He said there could be a lot of reasons, but the only way to get this Mirena out of my uterus is to have an abdominal hysterectomy to remove my uterus and cervix.

“My surgery is scheduled for next month but I am trying to get a second opinion. Meanwhile, I’ve booked time off work - thankfully, my boss understands and I have a job to come back to. Although I have health insurance that covers most of the surgery, I won’t have an income for almost two months; that is when I made inquiries about a Mirena lawsuit.”

“I filed a Mirena claim with LaywersandSettlements after reading a story about a woman whose pap test showed abnormal cells on her cervix that was caused by the Mirena,” says Angela. “I had my Mirena removed two years ago and six months later my pap test came back with abnormal cells - I had always had a clean bill of health. I had to get a cone biopsy of my cervix. Last November my husband and I were ecstatic with the news that I was pregnant; we were planning on having a family. But last month I had a miscarriage - we lost our baby.


“I have heard many stories of women losing a baby during gestation after they had a Mirena removed. I had to get a D&C and after that a hysterectomy. I need to know if Mirena caused my hysterectomy as well as the loss of my baby.”

Another Mirena Miscarriage and Ectopic Pregnancy

Long Island, NY: “I can’t believe that the Mirena IUD is still on the market,” says Tara. “There is no way that Bayer cannot know their birth control device is causing so many miscarriages - obviously they choose profit over patient safety.”

Another Mirena Miscarriage and Ectopic PregnancyTara had the Mirena implanted two years ago after her son was born. Interestingly, in this document to Bayer from the Food and Drug Administration, the Mirena maker says that “Mirena is recommended for women who have had at least one child.” Tara is so thankful she has a child because at this point she thinks that infertility is one of Mirena birth control side effects.

“Bayer Mirena warnings should include infertility,” says Tara, 28 years old. It would seem that the FDA would agree by issuing the following statement in January 2010:

“The risk presentation omits the contraindications regarding untreated lower genital tract infections and conditions associated with increased susceptibility to pelvic infections, and does not adequately convey that should a woman become pregnant while using Mirena, she may lose her baby or her fertility.”

Rather than remove Mirena from the market, however, Bayer was requested (in the same document as above) by the FDA to cease using certain promotional materials, i.e., “Mirena may help couples keep life simple” and that Mirena will “help you be more intimate” with your partner.

For women like Tara, these statements by Bayer are nothing short of outrageous, and she is appalled that the FDA has not recalled Mirena.

“When I had the Mirena removed, my doctor had a hard time finding it because it had become embedded in my fallopian tube,” says Tara. “It was so painful, and my gynecologist (I have since changed to another doctor) didn’t give me any advice on what to do or what not to do. About two months later, I became pregnant but miscarried at eight weeks.”

Tara asked her doctor how this could have happened - she was young and healthy and had never miscarried before. Her gynecologist told her that she should have waited at least six months after the Mirena was removed so that her body could heal and get her hormones back to the right levels.

“He told me that I would have miscarried before 12 weeks because my uterus wasn’t strong enough to hold the child,” says Tara, crying. “I had to go to the hospital and get a D & C. I was heartbroken and depressed.” Add to that another emotion: she was soon to become furious.

“My husband and I decided to wait, and in August, I found out that I was seven weeks pregnant,” Tara says. “My new gynecologist had been vigilantly checking my hormone levels, and at the beginning of September, I had a sonogram. The technician asked me if I was pregnant, which I found odd. She had to do an internal sonogram and found that the baby was in my fallopian tube - an ectopic pregnancy. She gave her condolences and then my gynecologist, visibly upset, told me it was so unexpected.”

There was nothing they could do; an ectopic pregnancy can be life threatening. Tara had her tube and ovary removed - the tube where the Mirena had become embedded months ago.

“My doctor says that I can try to have another baby but I don’t know if I want to go through this again,” Tara explains. “If I knew that Mirena can cause miscarriages and ectopic pregnancies, I would never have had this IUD. Honestly, I don’t know if this has affected my fertility; I don’t know if I can have any more kids. As well, I was out of work for so long and now I am out of work again and cannot yet lift my son from the surgery. Mirena has caused so much pain on so many levels: physically, emotionally and even financially.”

The Mayo Clinic lists Mirena side effects and explains that if you do conceive while using Mirena, you’re at higher risk of an ectopic pregnancy - when the fertilized egg implants outside the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube. It does not go so far to say that Mirena can cause an ectopic pregnancy after it has been removed.
