Paragard IUD

Philadelphia Paragard Injury Lawyers

If You Required Surgery from an IUD, We Are Here to Help

The Paragard T 380A, produced by Teva Pharmaceuticals, is a common birth control device used across the country. A copper device, it is inserted into the uterus (“IUD” stands for “intrauterine device”). Sperm reacts to the copper. By staying away from the copper, the sperm avoids fertilizing the egg just beyond the device.

As a non-hormonal birth control solution, the Paragard has become quite popular. Many women enjoy its effectiveness without hormonal side effects.

Still, the Paragard is not without other side effects. Women may experience cramping, pain during sex, painful periods, and other related symptoms. Rarely, serious side effects like pelvic inflammatory disease, sepsis, or other major problems can occur. Side effects are a potential reality with any medical device, but if these problems occurred because a doctor inserted the device incorrectly, it may be time to consult an attorney.

IUD Lawsuit

In 2016, a Nebraska woman was having her Paragard removed. During the process, the device broke, and a piece of it embedded into her uterus. After complications emerged, she had to go into surgery to have the rest of the device removed.

Since then, other women have expressed similar concerns, and a class action lawsuit was filed. The women’s claim is that the device was not appropriately labeled. Doctors were not on the lookout for breakages, so steps weren’t taken to avoid the problem. The women afflicted with the broken pieces reported several problems.

According to the women, defective IUDs were responsible for:

  • Damage to internal organs
  • Crippling pain during menstruation
  • Unusually heavy bleeding and spotting
  • Pelvic inflammation
  • Infections
  • Rendering women infertile

To have these IUDs finally removed, many women have had to undergo surgery. Some have required a Cesarean section, normally used for childbirth, to open the uterus and remove the damaged device. More extreme cases required a hysterectomy, a total removal of the uterus. Prior to surgery, many had to have a hysteroscopy procedure, where a thin scope enters the uterus to find the cause of the problem. Still others had to endure exploratory surgery, where doctors had to cut them open to try to locate what was wrong.
