Since Mirena hit the market, it has become one of the most popular birth control devices in the U.S. Known for its convenience, it has become widely used among women who already have children. Although the device has proven effective for many women, it has resulted in serious injury to many more.
In fact, according to Adverse Events, there were 47,506 reports of serious adverse events associated with the Mirena between November 1997 and August 2012. Of these injuries, the most common include device expulsion, device dislocation and vaginal hemorrhage. Many injured women have required hospitalization and there have been a few reports of death.
