WKW is no longer accepting cases for injuries sustained from Mirena.
The Mirena® IUD, manufactured by Bayer Pharmaceuticals, was launched and approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as a long-term form of birth control. The Mirena® IUD is a small, plastic, flexible, T-shaped device that’s placed in the uterus by your healthcare provider during a routine office visit. The Mirena® device releases levonorgestrel, a progestin which is found in several birth control pills, which prevents pregnancy in several ways. The Mirena® IUD thickens cervical mucus to prevent sperm from entering the uterus and thins the lining of the uterus.
The Mirena® IUD is recommended as a form of long-term birth control for women who have had children.
In 2009, the FDA sent a warning letter to Bayer Pharmaceuticals and Mirena. The warning letter states that Mirena omitted certain information regarding potential side effects and minimized the risks by stating claims that could not be proven. Many women who chose Mirena® as a form of birth control may not have been aware of serious side effects. The letter also pointed out that Mirena® stated women who choose Mirena® will “look and feel great” – a claim the FDA says there is no evidence to support.
