We are no longer offering lawyers for the Mirena IUD cases.
The Mirena IUD causes many symptoms and complications. However to file a Mirena IUD products liability lawsuit you must meet certain criteria. Now, although you were never told you had some of these issues and believe you do not qualify, you should see a physician to be sure. Perforation of the intestine leads to leakage of intestinal contents into the abdominal cavity. This causes inflammation called peritonitis. A uterine perforation is a hole made through the wall of the uterus. Some of the medical conditions that may imply a perforation of the uterus or abdomen, or that indicate your Mirena may have moved or become embedded in an organ include:
- Inability to feel or locate the string
- Bleeding from vagina or bowel
- Severe sharp pain in the abdomen
- Lower back pain
- Sharp jabbing pain
- Lower abdominal pain
- Heavy vaginal bleeding
- Inability to locate the Mirena IUD string
- Bloating, rigidity and pain in the abdomen
- Rapid heartbeat
Mirena IUD Lawsuit Checklist
A lot of Mirena women either don’t go to follow up appointment or by the time they go to follow up the Mirena has already moved. If that happens this becomes a med mal issue and not a products issue. The statute of limitations starts to run when you knew Mirena perforated an organ.
Of course, consult with your doctor if you are experiencing any of the symptoms listed above to see if the Mirena has moved and caused a perforation. Consult with one of our Mirena IUD lawyers to be sure.
