Like other contraceptives, the hormone in Mirena is designed to prevent pregnancy by thinning the lining of the uterus, thereby preventing sperm from reaching and fertilizing and egg, and by thickening cervical mucus to prevent sperm from entering the uterus. Should these attempts not work the a IUD itself aborts a fertilized egg

The letter stated that Bayer, the manufacturer, “overstates the efficacy of Mirena IUD, presents unsubstantiated claims, minimizes the risks of using Mirena IUD , and includes false or misleading presentations regarding Mirena IUD .”
January 2013, A motion has been filed to centralize nationwide Mirena lawsuits into one federal court. Plaintiff Stephanie Barnett has filed a motion with the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multi-District Litigation (JPML) seeking the creation of an MDL in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Ohio, where her lawsuit is currently pending. With pending actions in several other states, she argues that an MDL is necessary to avoid conflicting rulings in multiple courts
