Ladies! Did you have complications from an IUD?

Siri & Glimstad and Cory Watson Attorneys are partnering to evaluate claims from women who used a ParaGard IUD for birth control and suffered complications during removal.

About the ParaGard IUD lawsuit

The ParaGard IUD is a copper T-shaped intrauterine device that has been used by women for long term nonhormonal contraceptive purposes. ParaGard can break on removal, leaving parts behind as well as becoming stuck in the uterus or perforating the uterine wall.  In some cases, it has even migrated to other parts of the body and caused organ damage.

A Hidden Danger

ParaGard is the only copper IUD available in the United States.  It has to be inserted and removed by a doctor, and works by releasing copper into the uterine cavity. This produces an inflammatory reaction in the body which prevents pregnancy, but can have other negative consequences as well.

Some of the potential side effects connected to use of this product include ectopic pregnancy, pelvic infection, embedment into the uterus, perforation of uterine wall, impaired fertility and Wilson’s Disease.  

Current investigations center around claims that the arm of the device breaks during removal and can become lodged inside the uterus, sometimes leading to painful surgeries.  Some women have had to undergo complete hysterectomies due to complications from the device.

Holding Them Accountable

The manufacturer of the ParaGard IUD is accused of being aware of the defect and failing to adequately warn women about the risks involved with their device.
