Mirena is an intrauterine device (IUD) birth control device implanted into a woman’s uterus to prevent fertilization. The device prevents unwanted pregnancies, but studies have demonstrated that the device causes serious side effects.
Mirena use is 770% more likely to develop a serious medical condition known as Intracranial Hypertension (also known as Pseudotumor Cerebri). The condition is caused by an increase of cerebrospinal fluid in the skull. There are multiple symptoms that arise from this condition that resemble symptoms similar to a brain tumor.
These symptoms include:
- Optic nerve damage and vision changes, including temporary and permanent blindness
- Severe migraine headaches
- Loss of memory
- Hearing Damage
By failing to warn patients and their doctors about the well-known risks of Mirena, Bayer has caused thousands of unsuspecting women to suffer serious injuries.
