Lawsuits Uncover Additional IUD Side Effects
Women pursuing lawsuits over the Mirena® IUD (a.k.a. Mirena coil) have discovered additional injuries believed to be caused by the Mirena IUD, as well as other birth control products. The manufacturers gave no prior warnings to women about these serious complications.
A newly released study shows the Mirena IUD and other birth control products including:
- Ortho Evra®
may be linked to the development of pseudotumor cerebri, also called a false brain tumor or idiopathic intracranial hypertension. Pseudotumor cerebri occur when fluid builds up in the skull and is not released or absorbed at a proper rate, causing increased pressure.
Signs of Problems with Mirena IUDs and Other Birth Control
Pseudotumor cerebri mimics a tumor but is not a tumor.
Women affected by pseudotumor cerebri or false brain tumors typically suffer from severe migraines or headaches, ringing in the ears, nausea, vomiting, blurred vision, temporary blindness, double vision, blind spots or have other visual problems.
The visual problems are a result of increased pressure on the optic nerve.
