Southern Med Law’s Mirena Pregnancy and Birth Issues TV Commercials Began Airing on NBC, CBS, and Other Major Networks on September 20th
The Mirena pregnancy lawsuit attorneys at Southern Med Law announce that they have launched a new TV advertising campaign to publicized Mirena pregnancy and birth issues allegedly associated with the contraceptive device. The new television commercials began airing nationwide on September 20th on NBC, CBS, Bravo, HLN and other major networks. The Mirena IUD was found by the to cause serious risks to women who unknowing can become pregnancy while using the Mirena IUD, such as, risk of infection, miscarriage, ectopic pregnancy, and loss of a child. The CDC published a report that found the Mirena IUD device can cause spontaneous abortion, septic abortion, preterm delivery and a serious infection known as chorioamnionitis. The report also found in one case examining IUDs using levonorgestral found that when the birth control device was not removed, eight in 10 pregnancies ended in spontaneous abortions.[cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/rr6205a1.htm]
“Our Firm is representing families whose unborn babies experienced birth injuries believed to be due to the Mirena IUD after the birth control device failed to prevent pregnancy,” says Dr. François Blaudeau, the founder of Southern Med Law. “My colleagues and I thought it was important to make the public aware of this issue, so that others who were allegedly affected in the same manner can take appropriate steps to safeguard their legal rights.”
The Mirena IUD is a long-acting birth control method that is implanted into the uterus by a woman’s healthcare provider. It then releases a synthetic form of levonorgestral for up to five years. Court documents indicate that more than 3,000 Mirena lawsuits have been filed on behalf of women who allegedly sustained serious uterine injuries and other complications after the IUD spontaneously migrated, or became dislocated from, its proper position in the uterus. Such an occurrence may require a woman to undergo surgery to locate and remove the device. If a Mirena IUD migrates, it may also fail to prevent pregnancy.
Pregnancies that occur while the Mirena IUD remains in the body are more likely to be ectopic pregnancies, which comes about when an embryo implants in the fallopian tube or somewhere other than the uterus. Such pregnancies put a woman’s health and life at risk, and must be terminated. The Mirena IUD needs to be removed in the case of a uterine pregnancy, but this may prove difficult, if not impossible, when the device has migrated.
Earlier this year, Dr. Blaudeau and Southern Med Law filed a Mirena pregnancy lawsuit on behalf of an Alabama family who claim that their baby’s premature birth and subsequent death in 2012 was the result of an intra-uterine infection the mother developed due to her doctor’s inability to retrieve the IUD. The complaint charges that this infection caused the premature rupture of membranes, chorioamnionitis and preterm delivery before the baby’s lungs were fully developed.
