Side effects of Mirena IUD may cause a dangerous increase in fluid pressure in the skull, or the implanted birth control device could move inside the body.
Pseudotumor Cerebri (PTC) or Idiopathic Intracranial Hypertension (IIH): This condition involves a buildup of fluid on the brain, which may cause damage to the optic nerve, resulting in blindness or visual problems;
Perforation or Migration of the IUD: Mirena may become embedded within the wall of the uterus or move to other areas of the body, often resulting in the need for surgical removal of the implant
The Mirena IUD (Intra-Uterine Device) was introduced by Bayer in 2000, as a long-acting form of birth control that is inserted into the uterus to disrupt the egg and sperm. The device also releases the progestin levonorgestrel, which further acts to prevent pregnancy by keeping the woman’s ovaries from releasing eggs.
Although Mirena has been promoted as a safe and reversible form of birth control, which can prevent pregnancy for up to five years, thousands of women throughout the United States have filed product liability lawsuits alleging that they suffered a severe and debilitating Mirena IUD injury that the manufacturer failed to adequately warn about.
IIH/PTC is often difficult to diagnose, and is frequently mistaken for a tumor. Although Bayer knew or should have known about the link between Mirena and PTC/IIH, information about the risk was withheld from consumers and the medical community, increasing the severity of problems suffered by women nationwide.
Although the Mirena warnings do indicate there is a risk of perforation or migration, the manufacturer misleadingly indicated that the risk was rare and that the injury typically only occurs during insertion. However, many women have reported spontaneous migrations that occur long after the Mirena IUD was implanted and placement was confirmed.
