Mirena IUD device the subject of complaints, lawsuit.

Maybe you have heard of the Mirena IUD device, a birth control method often marketed to "busy moms" through parties.  Maybe you or someone you know eve has one.  If so, you should be warned that there might be mirena side effects that are quite serious.

The FDA, according to one site, has received more than 45,000 complaints related to the Mirena IUD -- but that may be the tip of the iceberg, as it's estimated that more than 2,000,000 women in the US alone (and 15,000,000 worldwide) have the device.  Side effects it has been linked to include infection, ovarian cysts, bleeding, and even miscarriage of pregnancies and perforation of the uterine wall.

This site has information on a mirena lawsuit and information about the hazards some experts say are related to Mirena, as well as informatino on who to contact if you think you have been put at risk or already been harmed.  If you've used the Mirena device or know someone who has, it's worth checking out.
