Broken Paragard IUDs and Serious Injury Risk
Paragard is a popular IUD approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for birth control. It is the only non-hormonal IUD available in the United States, and works by using low levels of copper toxicity to prevent pregnancy.
However, Paragard devices may break while implanted or during surgical removal, resulting in serious broken Paragard injury risk.
According to the manufacturer, Teva Pharmaceuticals, during removal, “The threads can retract into the uterus and break, or Paragard can break, perforate the uterus, or be expelled.”
Paragard’s own prescribing information states that “breakage of an embedded Paragard during non-surgical removal has been reported.”
A broken Paragard IUD can result in serious injury, including:
- Uterus perforation (tearing)
- Organ damage
- Ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy complication)
If you have suffered any of these injuries or another broken Paragard injury during removal, please call 1-800-525-7111 for a FREE claim investigation. You may be entitled to compensation.
