Warning notices from the FDA for deceptive marketing claims for the Mirena.

In December 2009 Bayer was warned by the FDA that its advertising omitted serious and frequent risks associated with Mirena. This warning letter to Bayer over its Mirena “look and feel great” claims and understating the potential dangers. The FDA referenced the organizing of home party promotional events that claimed that the use of the IUD would improve couples’ relationships and sex lives.

The FDA said that there was no evidence the device did this and in fact our women callers tell us ” the Mirena has ruined my life”. “I want a lawyer and I want to sue for this misery” None of those things will help someone look or feel “great,”
