Complications of the Mirena IUD can range from the mild to the more serious, according to lawsuits that allege ectopic pregnancy and other side effects of the birth control implant. This particular complication may occur in women whose IUD spontaneously migrated away from the uterine wall and into other parts of the body, and manifest in the fallopian tube, or anywhere else outside the uterus. To preserve a woman’s reproductive health, Mirena ectopic pregnancy may require emergency care, and even necessitate surgical intervention to save a woman’s life, in the worst-case scenario.
Women who suffered an ectopic pregnancy after implantation of the Mirena IUD are encouraged to call the following toll-free number for more information: (888) 994-5118.
Mirena ectopic pregnancy may result from the IUD’s spontaneous migration from the uterine wall, and into other parts of the abdominal cavity. Because women are often unaware that their IUD has migrated, they don’t know they should be practicing other forms of birth control in its place.
Problems associated with Mirena ectopic pregnancy may occur if the embryo starts to grow in the fallopian tube, causing it to stretch. This can be damaging if the fallopian tube begins to split and rupture. A woman may then experience pain, bleeding and even sepsis, shock or death if this should occur.
IUD recipients who may be experiencing the following symptoms are urged to call their doctors immediately, as they may indicate Mirena ectopic pregnancy:
