The Paragard® IUD was designed as a long-term birth control device. It’s made from t-shaped plastic with copper wire coiled around it. It is implanted in the uterus and passively prevents pregnancy, but the faulty design can cause these IUDs to break or cause damage to the uterus during removal. When this happens, serious complications can arise, and further surgery may be required to remove the broken pieces. In some more severe cases, a hysterectomy is required.

The Dangers of Paragard® IUDs

The Paragard® IUD was designed as an effective birth control device. Among its listed benefits was that it’s supposed to remain in place for up to 10 years, can be removed whenever you like, and can even be used while breast-feeding. It doesn’t affect hormones and in some cases can be used as a form of emergency contraception provided it’s inserted within five days.

However, the dangers of the Paragard® IUD made themselves apparent when women tried to take advantage of the fact that the device could supposedly be removed at any time. Upon removal, the device would often cause severe damage to the uterus or break, requiring further surgery to remove all the broken pieces. Numerous women have suffered serious and permanent injuries due to this design flaw.

What Is the Problem With the Device?

The inherent problem with the Paragard® IUD lies in its structural integrity. Instead of being able to bend properly during the removal process, it often breaks and leaves dangerous pieces inside the uterus.

While some women are able to expel IUDs on their own, the pieces of a broken one can easily get stuck and require surgery for proper removal. In some of the more severe cases, a hysterectomy is required to remove it entirely, a devastating surgery for women who looked to this device as a temporary birth control method.

Complications of the Paragard® IUD

The following complications and serious injuries have been linked to the Paragard® IUD:

  • Perforation of the uterus
  • Copper wire left behind, causing inflammation
  • Infections
  • Scarring
  • Organ damage
  • Device migration
  • Device breakage
  • Ectopic pregnancy (in a small percentage of cases)

Has the Paragard® IUD Been Recalled?

Additionally, numerous lawsuits allege that the manufacturers knew about the risks, yet didn’t take the necessary steps to warn the public or make the design safer for use.
