Paragard Removal Injury and Surgery Risks
Paragard IUDs (intrauterine birth control devices) are common among women in the United States. In fact, the Paragard IUD has been approved by the FDA and in use since the 1980s. However, serious complications from broken Paragard IUDs have been reported, and Paragard removal surgery can result in serious injury.
In this article, we’ll describe potential injuries caused by Paragard IUDs, including Paragard removal injury, and also share what women who have suffered injury potentially due to Paragard copper IUDs can do to seek compensation and protect their legal rights.

Paragard Injury Risk
Paragard is a common copper IUD that has been used by millions of women for birth control. It is currently the only non-hormonal IUD option available. However, despite its popularity, serious Paragard injuries have been reported.
Under certain circumstances, the Paragard IUD may break and require surgical removal. A broken Paragard device and removal surgery can both result in serious injury.
Injuries potentially caused by broken Paragard IUDs and removal include:
- Uterus perforation (tearing)
- Copper wire left behind after surgery, resulting in injury and inflammation
- Organ damage
- Ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy complication)
- Brain injury (PTC)

Paragard Removal Injury and Surgery Complications
According to the manufacturer, “surgery may sometimes be needed to remove Paragard,” and these devices can even become “stuck in the uterus.”
The surgical removal of a Paragard IUD can be complicated and result in serious injury.
In some cases, the Paragard device may break during removal, and this can result in serious injury and other complications.
Teva Pharmaceuticals, which manufactures Paragard devices, states that during surgical removal, “The threads can retract into the uterus and break, or Paragard can break, perforate the uterus, or be expelled.”
Prescribing information also states that “breakage of an embedded Paragard during non-surgical removal has been reported.”
If a Paragard IUD breaks during removal, it may require additional, more complicated surgery that can result in serious injury and other complications.
Women who have suffered these outcomes may be entitled to compensation and be eligible for a Paragard lawsuit.
