Paragard® IUDs linked to serious medical complications including ectopic pregnancies. Did you experience health complications after an IUD implant? You may be entitled to compensation.
The Paragard® IUD is a popular choice of birth control because it is hormone-free, can last up to 10 years, and can be removed at any time. However, new reports from peer-reviewed medical journals are showing that serious medical complications can occur when the Paragard® IUD is removed.
Upon removal of the IUD, there are a number of issues that can occur that can seriously injure the woman. These issues include fracture, break, or breaking of the IUD during the removal process.
During removal, IUD pieces may break off or fracture, which will require additional surgery that is more extensive and painful. In dangerous cases, a hysterectomy could be required because of the damage caused by Paragard®. On the Paragard® website, the manufacturers admit that the device may be difficult to remove because “it is stuck in the uterus” and surgery may be required for removal.
The Paragard® IUD lawsuit was filed in state court against Teva Pharmaceuticals® after a Florida woman had issues with the device. Within a year of IUD being implanted, she began to experience severe complications. The woman required surgery to remove the IUD after it migrated out of her uterus and became embedded in her colon.
If a pregnancy occurs while the IUD is implanted, there is a risk of a dangerous ectopic pregnancy. If left untreated, it can cause life-threatening bleeding in the mother.
Implant issues include fracture, break, or breaking of the IUD during the removal process, resulting in further surgeries.
Several women have begun filing lawsuits seeking compensation for their injuries against the manufacturers of the Paragard® IUD. The Paragard® IUD lawsuit was filed in state court against Teva Pharmaceuticals® after a Florida woman had issues with the device.
