The Mirena IUD lawyers at the Rottenstein Law Group are concerned about a new study* that approves of the use of the hormonal IUD in teens. The firm has received many calls from women who have had the IUD surgically removed because it became embedded in their uteruses.
“We have filed lawsuits on behalf of women who have experienced the Mirena IUD’s serious alleged side effects,” said Rochelle Rottenstein, principal of the Rottenstein Law Group. “I’m sure the researchers acted in good faith, but in our experience their findings do not tell the whole story. Regardless, all of these studies have the potential to be included as evidence in a trial."
The study, published in the May 2013 edition of the Obstetrics & Gynecology medical journal, found that hormonal IUDs like Mirena were a better fit for teenagers than copper IUDs like the ParaGard. This is despite the fact that Mirena’s original target market was women who have had at least one child. In addition, women across the United States have filed lawsuits that have been consolidated at the federal level (In re: Mirena IUD Products Liability Litigation, MDL No. 2434, U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York) and in at least one state (In re: Application for Centralized Management of Certain Cases Involving Mirena, Morris County (N.J.) Superior Court).
The Mirena IUD is a plastic contraceptive device that slowly releases a type of the hormone progestogen over the course of five years. It was first introduced in 2000 and is manufactured by Bayer.
The Rottenstein Law Group encourages those implanted with the Mirena IUD to visit its website at http://www.mirenalawsuit.us to read more information about the side effects associated with the device and to learn more about Mirena lawsuits.
