The Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”) has issued a warning regarding the distribution and use of unapproved IUD’s (intrauterine devices). IUD’s are commonly used as intrauterine contraception devies but many of the IUD’s have caused serious complications in thousands of women. Common complications and symptoms are:
Embedment of the device in the uterine wall
Migration of the device
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
Amenorrhea (absence of a menstrual period)
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.
