Free Case Review
Like all women, teens who are considering Mirena need to be fully apprised of its risk.

Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a law firm currently representing women in Mirena lawsuits* (, notes that a prominent medical group is advocating the use of IUDs and other long-acting birth control methods as first-line choices for teen girls. Among other things, the American Academy of Pediatrics points out that these methods are more reliable than condoms or birth control pills used by most teenagers.**

“Like all women, teens who are considering Mirena need to be fully apprised of its risks, and they should be informed that the manufacturer of the IUD recommends that it be used by patients who have given birth at least once, which would likely exclude many patients in this age group,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free case evaluations to women who were allegedly harmed after their Mirena IUD spontaneously migrated from its proper position in the uterus.

The Mirena IUD is a long-acting contraceptive that was initially approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 2000. In 2009, the FDA also approved Mirena for the prevention of heavy menstrual bleeding in women who wish to use an IUD as their primary method of birth control. Among other things, the Mirena label specifically recommends the IUD be used by women who have already had at least one child.*** In 2009, the FDA issued a Warning Letter to Bayer after finding that one of the company’s Mirena promotions made misleading claims about the safety and efficacy of the IUD.

Alleged victims of serious Mirena complications associated with spontaneous IUD migration may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
