Controversy Over Bayer's Commercials Despite Mirena Lawsuits
By Andrea Gressman
One of the most serious side effects that have been reported over and over in Mirena lawsuits is the fact that the Mirena IUD migrates from its original position and moves throughout the woman’s body causing severe damage in the process. There have been reports of perforated uteruses, organ damage, and even the Mirena IUD migrating to the woman’s abdomen. Women have had to undergo hysterectomies in order to correct the injuries sustained by the Mirena IUD.
What is making this so controversial are the number of lawsuits that have been filed and the significant injuries these Mirena IUD users are experiencing. Some of the side effect victims are losing their ability to have children, yet that doesn’t seem to be enough to get Bayer to mention these severe side effects in their marketing campaign or, better yet, recall the Mirena IUD all together.
This is not new territory for Bayer. The pharmaceutical giant is currently facing thousands of lawsuits over its other birth control options Yaz, Yasmin, and Ocella, which they have already paid out millions of dollars in settlements for. However, this large amount of money does not seem to compare to the amount of money they make off the actual products themselves, otherwise Bayer might change their ways.
Over 40,000 side effect reports have been provided to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) regarding the Mirena IUD. However, the number of side effect victims is likely much higher as these reports are only made on a voluntary basis and many are not aware that they can even make a side effect report to the FDA. Yet, Bayer continues on with business as usual completely disregarding this huge number.
Currently it has still not been determined if the Mirena lawsuits will be consolidated into multidistrict litigation (MDL). There has been a request submitted by the plaintiffs in order to create a Mirena IUD lawsuit MDL, but Bayer has filed paperwork opposing this. However, there is still a chance that a MDL will be established despite Bayer’s objections.
