Mirena IUD is becoming a blockbuster to women. However, it is always important to consult a doctor if you are interested to use this birth control methods. In this way, you may enjoy the maximum benefits offered by Mirena and avoid any complications. There are articles that I have read from rries-with-it-some-serious-sid e-effects/ that these devices may cause rare but serious health complication, which results into filing of lawsuits against it manufacturer, Bayer.
