IUD's And Complications

Contextual Image

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning regarding the distribution and use of unapproved IUD’s (interuterine devices).  IUD’s are commonly used as intrauterine contraception devices but many of the IUD’s have caused serious complications in thousands of women.  Common complications and symptoms are:

  • Uterine Perforation
  • Embedment of the device in the uterine wall
  • Migration of the device
  • Pelvic inflammatory disease
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Irregular bleeding
  • Amenorrhea (absence of a menstrual period)
  • Miscarriage
  • Multiple surgeries required to correct damage.

Manufacturers of the IUD’s have estimated that hundreds of thousands of women have used this product.  If you or someone you know has been affected by any complications, or is experiencing any of the above symptoms, you may have a personal injury claim.  An experienced personal injury attorney can provide you with a consultation, protect your rights, and guide you through the legal process.
