Many young women have dreams concerning their future and family. In today’s society, these dreams are jointly achievable. However, often to attain and balance employment success with a fruitful family life requires work and planning. This is why many women utilize contraceptives such as Mirena IUD. Thus, they can be healthy and sexually active but prolong having children until the timing is most favorable. One such woman was Kelli Baugh from South Carolina.
Mrs. Baugh was in her early twenties. The dreams of career, love, and children were present in the promise of the long life that lay before her. Like many women these days, both married and unmarried, Mrs. Baugh used contraceptives to delay pregnancy. Specifically, Ms. Baugh began using the Mirena IUD. This is when a chain of events commenced that forever altered those dreams and promises of the life she desired for herself.
Her Mirena IUD migrated, perforating her uterine wall and causing an array of serious medical conditions. Mrs. Baugh had to have her Mirena IUD surgically removed. Unfortunately, she also had to have a full hysterectomy. As a result of this surgery, Mrs. Baugh will never be able to have children. She is also in surgically induced menopause and must continue to take estrogen shots.
The children she might have had will never be born. How many other future mothers will never achieve their dreams as a result of injuries sustained by utilization of a birth control device marketed as an efficient “family planning tool?” Sadly, infertility is not the most serious side effect. The migration of the Mirena IUD can cause perforation of other internal organs, such as the bladder or the intestines causing internal bleeding, infection, and even death. The side effects of Mirena IUD clearly outweighs its benefits Young women working toward the dream of a career, love, and building a family can suffer undue harm if this device is implanted in them. The reality is horrifying and tragic.
Unfortunately, Mrs. Baugh’s case is not an exception to the rule. Hundreds of women from all across the country are coming forward to tell their stories of how using Mirena IUD resulted in serious physical injuries an emotional distress. Many women are seeking justice via the filing of lawsuits against Mirena for their injuries and damages naming Bayer Corporation as the defendant. Bayer is the corporation that both manufactures and markets the Mirena IUD.
Many of these lawsuits allege that Bayer was not forthright about the risk involved in using their Mirena IUD product. Further, they say that because there was no adequate warning, many women chose to have the Mirena IUD implanted that would not have otherwise. Accordingly, these lawsuits allege this lack of warning was negligent.
