This is a very important consumer alert. The product Mirena IUD (a hormonal intrauterine contraceptive device) manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc. that is used as a form of birth control has been found to cause many problems including wrongful death in women who have had, or still have, the device in their bodies. Over an estimated two (2) million women have had, or still have, the Mirena IUD device in their bodies, and this includes many women in Canton, Georgia.
Mirena was represented by Bayer to both consumers and doctors as being an IUD that would not migrate outside of the uterus once inserted into a woman’s body. It has been found, however, that the Mirena IUD has migrated out of the uterus after insertion according to dozens or more of lawsuits that are being filed against Bayer, the manufacturer of the Mirena IUD. It is important to note that these are lawsuits against the manufacturer, Bayer, of the Mirena IUD, and not the doctor.
The most common, and serious, side effects of the Mirena IUD include, but are not limited to the following:
1.) Wrongful Death;
2.) Intrauterine Pregnancy;
3.) Ectopic Pregnancy;
4.) Streptococcal Sepsis;
5.) Breast Tenderness;
6.) Pelvic Pain;
7.) Painful Menstruation;
10.) Irregular spotting or bleeding;
11.) Ovarian Cysts;
12.) Pelvic Inflammatory Disease;
13.) Intestinal Perforations or Obstruction;
17.) Erosion of Adjacent Areas such as the Vagina;
19.) Embedment in the Uterine Lining;
20.) Perforation of the Uterus; and
21.) Device Migration.

I, personally, Julie A. Rice, Attorney at Law, had this Mirena IUD device inserted in my body between having my first child and after several attempts at having a second child since I wanted to wait a while before more attempts at having a second child. Using the Mirena IUD was highly recommended by my Fertility Specialist at Emory, and my ob/gyn at Piedmont concurred and inserted the Mirena IUD device accordingly. I was in pain after the insertion of the Mirena IUD for over a year when I finally elected to have the device removed. Subsequently, I had to have a hysterectomy due to all the pain I continued to experience.
I understand the reality of the problems with this device not only as an attorney but as a woman who had the Mirena IUD in my body and the many real problems it may have caused to me and my health. I welcome to hear from you today so you can protect yourself if you have not had problems and also so that you receive just compensation if you have had problems due to the Mirena IUD. I look forward to hearing from you soon.
