Paragard IUDs Pose Risk To Women’s Health

Any woman experiencing adverse side effects after using the Paragard Intrauterine Device (IUD) for contraception should consult with their medical provider quickly. Paragard is manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals and is promoted as a safe, non-hormonal birth control option. Teva has recently come under fire in the courts for failing to warn women and the medical community about the serious injuries associated with unexpected breakage, perforation, and migration of the device. Since Paragard has been on the market, women and medical providers have made more than 40,000 reports to the FDA alleging adverse reactions with the device – including injuries resulting in hysterectomies and even death.

Our firm is investigating Paragard IUD injury and complication claims. If you have been prescribed a Paragard IUD and have suffered a related injury or complication, call us at 419-241-1953 or 1-800-637-8170 for a no-cost consultation.
