Mirena IUD Side Effects & Complications

Mirena is a hormonal intrauterine device (IUD) that is inserted into the uterus as a long-term, reversible contraceptive method. It’s composed of a soft, flexible, T-shaped plastic that releases a type of progestin. It thickens cervical mucus to prevent egg fertilization and thins the lining of the uterus to partially suppress ovulation.

Although many women use Mirena with little or no problems, the FDA has reported serious side effects and complications arising from its use, including, but not limited to the following:

  • Intrauterine pregnancy
  • Embedment
  • Perforation
  • Expulsion
  • Ovarian cysts
  • Breast cancer
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
  • Sepsis
