Mirena IUD is a long-acting reversible contraceptive device manufactured by Bayer. The company was criticized by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for it’s alleged misleading “Simple Style Campaign” that did not report all warnings regarding Mirena IUD’s routine use. Alleged risks involved with using the Mirena IUD device include uterine perforation, pelvic inflammatory disease, amenorrhea, and pain and cramping by becoming dislodged or shifting in the uterus.
In New Jersey, Bayer moved to consolidate 16 Mirena IUD lawsuits filed in Middlesex County, New Jersey. Additionally, an Indiana woman filed a lawsuit after she allegedly suffered permanent physical injury from Mirena IUD (Case No. 61910-12). Allegedly, the medical device shifted in her abdominal wall resulting in her having to undergo laprascopy surgery. Lawsuits against Bayer alleging the company failed to provide adequate warnings and instructions have seen a nationwide increase with filings in both state and federal courts. As of June 30, 2012, the FDA has received 45,697 reports that Mirena IUD has caused unfavorable side effects.
