Wexler Wallace is currently investigating the contraceptive device, Mirena. Mirena is an intrauterine device manufactured by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals, Inc. The T-shaped device releases small amounts of a synthetic progestin hormone, levonorgestrel, and is inserted by a healthcare provider for the purpose of contraception. Mirena prevents pregnancy by thinning the lining of a woman’s uterus, which may increase the risk of perforation. Once outside the uterus, serious internal complications can occur. Multiple cases have been filed in both state and federal courts for Bayer’s failure to communicate these risks associated with Mirena.
If you or a loved one have experienced complications associated with the use of Mirena, please contact us at (312) 346-2222 for more information or complete our Online Form.
