Is Mirena as good as claimed?
Gynecology / Jan 14th, 2013 9:13 am     A+ | a-
Mirena is a soft, flexible IUD that releases small amounts of hormone locally into uterus. Small, T-shaped and made of soft, flexible plastic. Mirena is also proven to treat heavy periods in women who choose intrauterine contraception. The hormonal intrauterine contraceptive device is a t-shaped device that is implanted inside the uterus in female who don't want baby and it is left there for up five years. While in place inside the uterus, Mirena releases the hormone levonorgestrel. In USA Mirena is found to create some serious complication and a Mounting lawsuits and reports of misleading advertising has been filed in USA. The court has raised some concerns about the safety of the device.    
According to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the most serious side effects associated with Mirena IUD include: 
1.    Perforation of uterine wall
2.    Ectopic pregnancy
3.    Intrauterine pregnancy
4.    Group A streptococcal sepsis
5.    Pelvic inflammatory disease
6.    Embedment of the device in the uterine wall

Only patient and her physician can determine if Mirena fits their needs. Mirena is usually recommended for ladies who've had a youngster. Don't use Mirena if patient have a pelvic infection, get infections easily and have certain cancers. Below 1% of users obtain a serious infection called pelvic inflammatory disease. For those who have persistent pelvic or abdominal pain, patient should first see doctor. Mirena may adhere to or have the wall from the uterus and cause other conditions. If Mirena is released, ptient should use back-up birth control method and she should call doctor. Although uncommon, pregnancy when using Mirena might be deadly and might result in decrease of pregnancy or fertility. Ovarian cysts may occur but usually disappear. Bleeding and spotting may rise in the first few months and then be irregular. Periods over time can be shorter, lighter or even stop.

Parker Waichman LLP continues to offer free lawsuit consultations to victims of Mirena IUD birth control. Mirena (levonorgestrel-releasing intrauterine system) is a hormone-releasing system which is also used by many gynecologists all over world to use DUB placed in uterus to prevent excessive bleeding for as long as you want for up to 5 years. Mirena also treats heavy periods in women who choose intrauterine contraception. The patients of USA report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA.

Once upon a time Mirena was one of the most effective birth control options available and it was highlighted very much by gynecologist. Although Mirena provides women with highly effective birth control with no daily routine but it is not free from complication.
