The Mirena intrauterine device (IUD) is a plastic IUD (as opposed to the copper IUD’s) that releases a small amount of hormone into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. The Mirena IUD is manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals. The Mirena IUD is linked to various injuries including uterine perforation (the IUD tears through the cervix or the wall of the uterus), ectopic pregnancy (when the embryo implants outside the uterine cavity), pelvic infections and pelvic inflammatory disease, and thrombosis (blood clots). For certain types of injuries such as those involving injury to feminine or female body parts like those involving the Mirena IUD, you may feel more comfortable speaking to a female lawyer.
