What Are Paragard Complications?

Paragard Complications - Riddle & Brantley Paragard Lawsuit LawyersParagard is the only FDA-approved non-hormonal intrauterine contraception device in the United States. According to the manufacturer, the Paragard IUD is 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. The device is wrapped in copper, which is toxic to sperm.

However, despite its effectiveness, Paragard complications can be serious and even life-threatening. In particular, the Paragard IUD may break, potentially embedding in the uterus and requiring surgical removal. Injuries may be suffered before, during, or after Paragard removal.

Potential Paragard complications include:

  • “Stuck” IUD in uterus
  • Embedment
  • Uterine perforation (tearing)
  • IUD migration (unintended movement)
  • Broken IUD, requiring surgery
  • Copper wire left in uterus following removal
  • Organ damage
  • Scarring
  • Infection
  • Ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy complication)
  • Brain injury

If you’ve suffered any of these injuries before, during or after Paragard removal, you may qualify for a Paragard lawsuit and we may be able to help. Please call 1-800-525-7111 today for a FREE consultation.

There is no obligation and you won’t pay any attorney fees unless we win your case and recover compensation for you.

Brain Injury Risk

Another potential Paragard complication is a serious brain injury known as “pseudotumor cerebri” or PTC. PTC occurs when pressure within the skull increases for no apparent reason. The condition is sometimes called “intracranial hypertension.”

In a 2015 study, a possible connection between copper-wrapped IUDs such as Paragard and PTC was discovered. According to researchers, the prevalence of PTC among women using the Mirena IUD (similar to Paragard) was “higher than expected.”

While rare, this potential Paragard complication can result in serious conditions including swelling of the optic nerve and vision loss.

Potential PTC symptoms include:

  • Vision loss or blindness
  • Nausea or dizziness
  • Vomiting
  • Tinnitus (ringing in the ears)
  • Back, neck, or shoulder pain
  • Flashes of light in the field of vision
  • Headaches
