Parker Waichman LLP, a national defective medical device law firm, has filed two lawsuits in the Superior Court of New Jersey, Morris County, on behalf of women who were allegedly harmed by the Mirena intrauterine device (IUD), manufactured by Bayer Corporation.

The first lawsuit was filed on behalf of an Ohio woman, and the second lawsuit was filed on behalf of an Oklahoma woman. Both lawsuits allege the women were forced to undergo hysteroscopy to remove the Mirena device after it migrated from the location where it was implanted. Both women say they suffer pain and severe and permanent injury from the defective device.

The Mirena IUD was approved by the FDA in 2000, and is a T-shaped device that releases a synthetic progestogen into the uterus to prevent pregnancy. The FDA reports that the device has been associated with numerous complications including intrauterine pregnancy, pelvic inflammatory disease, embedment in the uterine wall, uterine and cervical perforation, ectopic pregnancy, and group A streptococcal sepsis. Known Mirena IUD side effects include breast tenderness, pelvic pain, vaginitis, ovarian cysts, headaches, bleeding, irregular spotting, and pain during menstruation.

The lawsuits allege that the plaintiffs have acquired significant and accumulating medical expenses, as well as lost wages, and that the device has impaired the ability to earn future wages.
