We know we said we’d be relaxing here, but we thought it wise to give you a head’s up: birth control pills are not the only things you have to be worried about. Remember all that hullaballoo about those 4th generation combination oral contraceptives Yaz and Yasmin that caused serious blood clots? Hopefully, you didn’t have first-hand experience with the side effects; if you have, you should go see a product liability lawyer.
If you’re considering IUDs (intrauterine device), you should know that Mirena IUDs are getting a lot of attention in the US because there are quite a few claims that it moves! Sometimes it moves and disappears, and no one knows where it is until it punctures the uterus or causes some other havoc.
For those of you who may not be familiar with IUDs, it’s a contraceptive T-shaped device that is inserted into the uterus by a doctor or nurse. You don’t have to worry about remembering to take your pill or changing your sponge or whatever because it works for a prolonged period without attention (Mirena IUD is supposed to work for 5 years). It seems like a great concept, especially for busy working women and dizzy teenagers, but it isn’t all roses.
There are enough women complaining about the same things about Mirena IUD that it has been transferred to what is called multidistrict litigation. Basically, it means people from all over the US who have filed a civil lawsuit against the same defendant/s get together and get their cases heard together. It saves a lot of time, but each plaintiff still gets an individual verdict.
Okay, that may be too much information. What is important is if you are considering having a Mirena IUD inserted into your uterus, you might want to rethink that. There are other options anyway.
Well, enough of that. How about a healthy snack? Check this out!
