The Mirena intrauterine device (IUD) has increasingly becoming the most popular form of birth control among a number of women. Bayer Pharmaceuticals, the producer of Mirena IUD, has done a fantastic job of advertising their product through television advertisement and other forms of media. Bayer has spent a lot of money for the promotion of Mirena but it has more than paid itself.Even at a cost of $800, Bayer has lured more than a million of American women to obtain their unit. As an end result, Bayer is believed to have gained with billion of dollars. Mirena has still garnered negative reviews despite of Mirena’s success in the market.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has giventheMirena IUD approval as a form of birth control. It has also been approved by the FDA to be a treatment for women who suffered from heavy bleeding. Heavy menstrual bleeding is a rarely discussed but remarkably common condition that affects about one in four women.
Women who used IUD observed that by the third month, their flow reduced by 85 percent and by the 12thmonth, it reduced to 97 percent. One-third of women who used IUD have been discovered to totally not have any periods at all. Not having monthly periods may seem unusual to women, but this does not cause any health problems. This is because the blood is prevented from building up along the uterine linings by the hormonal IUD.
On the other hand, women have expressed their concern that Mirena has caused them with slight to serious side-effects. The most common side-effects reported by Mirena users are irregular menstruation, abdominal pain or cramps, mood swing, weight gain, nausea and headaches. There are also women who unfortunately suffered from serious side-effects such as perforation of the uterus, pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), IUD moving out of place and ectopic pregnancy. Moreover, the manufacturer of the IUD is going through a number of lawsuits filed against harmed Mirena users and to understand more concerning this matter, more information is offered atmirenalawsuit.us. The FDA has been conducting investigations about the reported problems caused by the birth control device.
