  • Surgical removal of additional pieces
  • Pelvic pain

OFFICIAL REPORTS LINK BROKEN PARAGARD DEVICES TO DAMAGES

Over 2,200 reports claiming injury or harm caused by the Paragard IUD have been received by the FDA since 2010, the details of which often involve the device fracturing or breaking apart either during or prior to removal. The breaking IUDs have resulted in many people still having fractured IUD pieces inside of them, usually requiring them to endure invasive procedures or surgeries after the failed removal.

The increasing number of recent reports has led to a floodgate of lawsuits from patients alleging that the IUD’s manufacturer, Teva Pharmaceuticals, failed to properly warn users about the frequency of breakage, potential for harm, and severity of side effects from broken devices.
