St. Louis, MO (PRWEB) January 31, 2013
The Onder Law Firm's Mirena IUD Lawsuit Center website explains the side effects that some women using the Mirena IUD have experienced, the notices the FDA sent the makers of the Mirena IUD regarding its advertising and marketing of the product and the legal rights women suffering from severe Mirena side effects have. The most severe Mirena side effects are perforation of the uterus or embedment in the uterine wall, either of which may result in damage internal organs and lead to internal scarring and infection and both of which may require surgery to correct. Other Mirena IUD side effects include altered uterine bleeding patterns, intermenstrual bleeding, abdominal and pelvic pain, ovarian cysts and IUD expulsion.
The FDA has issued warnings to the manufacture of Mirena regarding its advertising claims and the lack of reference to its possible Mirena side effects (fda.gov/downloads/Drugs/GuidanceComplianceRegulatoryInformation/EnforcementActivitiesbyFDA/WarningLettersandNoticeofViolationLetterstoPharmaceuticalCompanies/UCM197229.pdf). Bayer Healthcare, the company that produces Mirena, has over marketed benefits and minimized side effects in other products it has marketed to women in the past, such as the Yasmin and Yaz birth control pill warnings issued in 2003, 2008 and 2009 (fda.gov/downloads/Drugs/GuidanceComplianceRegulatoryInformation/EnforcementActivitiesbyFDA/WarningLettersandNoticeofViolationLetterstoPharmaceuticalCompanies/ucm053993.pdf). The Mirena FDA Letter stated that Bayer Healthcare had failed to adequately warn users of the potential Mirena side effects
