While the ParaGard device is considered generally safe, not all women are lucky enough to have a seamless IUD experience.
This intrauterine device contains copper instead of hormones. It is the copper producing an inflammatory device in the uterus that helps to prevent fertilization. Many women seek out ParaGard for no other reason than it’s the only copper option available for IUDs in the United States.
While the lack of copper in ParaGard might remove the risk of blood clots associated with IUDs containing hormones, this doesn’t mean ParaGard insertion and removal always goes smoothly.
The most common adverse outcomes associated with the ParaGard IUD include:
- Parts of the device breaking off during removal resulting in the need for surgery to remove the broken fragments
- Perforation of the uterus
- Pelvic pain
- Copper wire left inside the body
- Organ damage
Our core objective here is to help you overcome the hardship induced by your injuries by getting the compensation you are entitled to.
If you or a loved one has experienced ParaGard breakage, migration, or perforation, you should seek legal counsel. The injuries caused can even extend to an inability to bear children. When you suffer grievous and long-term injury as a result of medical equipment that has proven unfit for purpose, get the compensation you deserve.
Reach out to us here at ParaGard Lawsuit. Even if a ParaGard device has been responsible for you losing the ability to have children, there’s no need to lose your dignity, too.
