Asked by user in Alabama.
The hospital found my IUD in my pelvic area. I was told I need surgery to remove it.
I’m sorry this happened to you.
Thousands of complaints have been made to the United States Food and Drug Administration regarding the Mirena IUD. Many of these complaints have alleged that the device perforated the patient’s uterus or otherwise moved around the body. Several lawsuits have also been filed.
In general, companies that manufacture dangerous devices can be held liable for the damages caused by their products (including the cost of necessary surgeries). To hold the company liable, you need to prove that the manufacturer was negligent.
