The MIRENA IUD is manufactured by BAYER HEALTH CARE PHARMACEUTICALS and has become a popular form of long term contraception.
BAYER HEALTHCARE PHARMACEUTICALS (BAYER), hormone releasing MIRENA IUD is the subject of a growing number of lawsuits and investigations relating to claimed personal injuries. The MIRENA IUD was approved for use in women that had at least one child by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration in 2000. It is a levonorgestrel releasing device that is reportedly 99.9% effective following successful insertion. However, BAYER has now become a central figure in the growing number of MIRENA LAWSUITS. The company remains involved in thousands of pending lawsuits over the novel progestin, Drospirenone, found in the Blockbuster family of birth control pills commonly referred to as YASMIN, YAZ, BEYAZ and SAFYRAL.
Emerging allegations involving the MIRENA IUD are very different from those involving Drospirenone which focused on an increased risk of blood clots. However, the company remainsa common denominator in contraceptive litigation that began in 2009 and continues in 2013. With regard to the MIRENA INTRAUTERINE DEVICES, girls and women have come forward and claim a variety of injuries or complications following insertion, or continued use, of the device. The MIRENA IUD claimed to be a 'set and forget' form of contraception, left in place for up to 5 years to prevent pregnancy. However, it not known exactly how MIRENA works and this may provide some key to understanding why it has now been linked to a number of complications.
