(In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434.)
According to a May 2013 NBC News Report, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has logged more than 70,000 complaints about the Mirena IUD since the birth control device went to market in 2000. The Mirena complaints include reports of serious complications such as ectopic pregnancy, uterine perforation, device migration pelvic inflammatory disease, abnormal vaginal bleeding, infection, vaginal scarring and IUD expulsion.*
The FDA issued two warning letters in 2009 to Mirena manufacturer Bayer Pharmaceuticals. The letters stated that Bayer “presents unsubstantiated claims, minimizes the risks of using Mirena, and includes false or misleading presentations regarding Mirena.” The FDA warning letters were issued in response to Mirena online advertisements and videos published on the social networking website Mom Central.**
