Paragard IUD

Many women who use an (IUD) as their method of birth control expect the manufacturer to provide a safe product. Women also need to be warned of potential risks. However, many women have had severe complications, including death, from the IUD device Paragard®

Paragard® is a T-shaped, hormone-free, IUD made from flexible plastic. It has a thin layer of copper that serves as the device’s active ingredient by preventing sperm from reaching the egg and fertilizing it. The device is placed inside the uterus to prevent pregnancy. It is removable, and can last up to 10 years, according to the manufacturer. However a severe complication can occur. The arms of the IUD can break off inside the woman’s uterus and can cause many complications such as surgical removal, infertility, and pain.

The FDA first approved Paragard® in 1984. It is currently still prescribed for women and has not been recalled.

Women and their medical providers have made more than 40,000 reports to the FDA alleging adverse reactions during the more than 30 years since Paragard has been on the market in the U.S. These allegations include serious complications and deaths.

Some of the serious complications of using Paragard® include: breakage upon removal, IUD migration, ectopic pregnancy, the IUD embedding in the uterus, infection, inflammation caused by copper left in the body, a hysterectomy, perforation of the uterine wall or cervix, and death.
