Paragard IUD Lawsuit

Paragard is an intrauterine device (IUD) used as a long-term birth control (contraception). It is a copper, non-hormonal IUD birth control device that has been around since the 1980’s.

The Paragard IUD is a T-shaped plastic frame that is inserted into the uterus. Copper wire is coiled around the device, producing an inflammatory reaction that is toxic to sperm and eggs, thus preventing pregnancy. Paragard is the only copper IUD available in the U.S. It is able to prevent pregnancy for up to 10 years after insertion.

Potential Paragard Side Effects and Complications

Per the Mayo Clinic:

Paragard Lawsuit - Mayo Clinic

“It’s also possible to expel ParaGard from your uterus. You might not feel the expulsion if it occurs.

You may be more likely to expel ParaGard if you:

– Have never been pregnant

– Have heavy or prolonged periods

– Have severe menstrual pain

– Previously expelled an IUD

– Are younger than age 25

– Had the IUD inserted immediately after childbirth”

Side effects may include:

  • Bleeding between periods
  • Cramps
  • Severe menstrual pain and heavy bleeding

Women and medical providers have made over 37,000 reports to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) alleging adverse reactions during the last 30+ years since Paragard have been available in the United States. These reports and allegations include more than 15,700 serious complications and at least 15 deaths.

This data is available to the public in the FDA’s Adverse Events Reporting System (FAERS) database.

Severe complications may include:

  • IUD breakage upon removal  
  • IUD expulsion or falling out of the uterus
  • IUD migration
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • The IUD embedding in the uterus
  • Infection and/or abscess
  • Inflammation caused by copper left in the body
  • Hysterectomy
  • Perforation of the uterine wall or cervix
  • Scarring and damage to other organs
  • Death
