Bayer was sued over claims that the German drugmaker failed to provide disclosures and warnings regarding the health risks associated with its popular contraceptive Mirena. A number of women using Mirena has been suffering from serious health problems, such as pelvic inflammatory disease and uterine perforation. If you want to know more about Mirena and its side effects, there are articles that I bumped into at mirenalawsuit.us/fda-reports-t housands-of-complaints-about-m irena/ that may be of great help to you.

The government prosecutors are conducting an investigation as well regarding how birth controls were marketed. Certain birth controls, such as Mirena IUD, have damaging effects to its users based on media reports. Moreover, lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturer of this birth control. If you want to know more about Mirena and related injuries, there are articles that I bumped into at http://www.articlesnatch.com/profile/Stacey-C... that may be of great help to you.
