Bayer aggressively marketed Mirena to a “Busy Mom” demographic as a hassle-free form of birth control. But in 2009, the FDA issued a warning letter to Bayer after finding its Mirena promotions overstated the efficacy of the device, presented unsubstantiated claims, minimized the risks of Mirena, and used false and misleading presentations during in-home events touting the IUD. If you want to know more about Mirena and its side effects, there are articles that I bumped into at http://www.articlesnatch.com/profile/Stacey-C... that may be of great help to you.

All this time, there are still patients who have been kept in the dark of the true nature of Mirena despite news about its chain of complications which brought physical and emotional damage to its recipients. I just want to share this site mirenalawsuit.us/mirena-iud-ca rries-with-it-some-serious-sid e-effects/, they have helpful information about the complications that you may possibly get from a this birth control.

It is really surprising to know that there are several side effects to using hormonal contraceptives. I was trying to see if NuvaRing might be a good option but after searching online I changed my mind. I found out about its adverse side effects such as blood clots and high blood pressure. I was also looking at some online discussions and came across http://www.nuvaring-lawsuit.com/danish-study-...

It seems that everywhere you look Bayer seems to be embroiled in another legal case over their products, whether it's about their Activa or Yaz birth control pills or their Mirena IUD. Despite all the negative press they've received over these controversies, consumers still purchase their products resulting in large annual earnings due to the demand for quality birth control methods and other goods and services that they provide.
