Paragard Problems and Lawsuits
Paragard problems continue to pile up as more allegations are made that Paragard IUDs are not safe.
Lawsuits alleging that Paragard causes serious injury have been consolidated into multi-district litigation (MDL) and we anticipate hundreds more to be filed in the weeks and months ahead. Alleged Paragard problems include the fact that many women have reported serious injuries due to broken Paragard IUD devices, which often occur during Paragard removal surgery.

What Are the Problems with Paragard?
Paragard is a popular copper intrauterine device (IUD) used for birth control that was first approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1984. It is the only non-hormonal birth control device approved by the FDA in the United States. Instead of using hormones to prevent pregnancy, the Paragard IUD is wrapped in copper, which is toxic to eggs and sperm.
Since the device was approved in 1984, Paragard problems have been reported by many patients and doctors.
The Paragard prescription label summarized some of the device’s problems, including a warning that the IUD may cause perforation, or tearing of the uterus.
Injuries potentially caused by a broken Paragard or Paragard removal include:
- Tearing (peforation of the uterus)
- Embedment (embedding of the IUD in the uterus)
- Ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy complication)
- Brain injury (PTC)
- Organ damage
- IUD migration (unintended movement)
In 2019, the FDA issued a warning letter to a Paragard manufacturer, saying that the manufacturer’s advertisement for Paragard misrepresented the risks of the IUD.
Paragard is manufactured by The Cooper Companies, which bought the brand from the original manufacturer, Teva Pharmaceuticals, in 2017. The companies have denied any wrongdoing, but are accused of failing to alert consumers to potential Paragard problems and injury risks.
These manufacturers now face MDL (multi-district litigation) in the Northern District of Georgia.
