The intrauterine contraceptive device Mirena® can shift inside the body causing serious side effects.
Manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc., Mirena® is a hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) that is used as a form of birth control. The IUD is a soft, flexible, T-shaped piece of plastic that contains the hormone levonorgestrel. Mirena® is a long-acting reversible contraceptive lasting up to 5 years, and has to be inserted and removed by a qualified medical professional. The device releases 20 micrograms per day and eventually declines to 14 grams after 5 years — less than oral contraceptives that contain 150 micrograms.
Some women have experienced serious adverse side-effects and potentially life-threatening complications following the implantation of the Mirena® device, including:
- Perforation of the Uterine Wall
- Migration of the IUD to Outside the Uterus
- Expulsion of the Mirena IUD
- Complications that Result in Surgery to Remove Mirena IUD

Consult A Doctor On Medical Issue
