What Is Paragard?

The company that manufactures the birth control device Paragard markets the device as a safe and non-hormonal, long-term birth control option for women. The Paragard IUD is made from plastic and includes coils of copper wrapped around the base and arms of the T-shaped device.

The manufacturer states that the device is over 99 percent effective at preventing pregnancy and can be worn for up to 10 years. There is no complicated surgery needed. The device can be inserted into the uterus by a qualified physician with one in-office visit.

Sounds like a great option for women looking for a non-hormonal way to prevent pregnancy and take control of their bodies and reproductive health. Unfortunately, what the manufacturer did not disclose, is that the device can cause serious health complications.

Why Is the Paragard IUD So Dangerous?

Why is Paragard so dangerous? Since gaining FDA approval in 1984, the device has become a popular option with modern women, especially those that are looking for long-term pregnancy prevention without the side effects some hormones can cause. As its popularity began to take off, more and more women began coming forward with complaints about the device breaking apart upon removal. The medical community began to document these reports and the damage caused by the device’s breakdown.

The device breaking while implanted in the uterus or during removal is a serious cause for concern. The broken pieces can be sharp and cause puncturing, scratching, bleeding, and other serious damage to the uterus. The only recourse a woman has for retrieving the broken pieces of the Paragard IUD is surgery.

Other documented medical reports refute the manufacturer's claims that the device is suited for long-term use and pregnancy prevention. These reports detailing the early removal of the Paragard IUD claim that the device did not hold up to its expected lifespan.

The defective medical device attorneys at The Driscoll Firm, LLC understand what a frightening experience a Paragard failure can be. One office visit can turn into emergency surgery and leave you struggling to handle the emotional, physical, and financial consequences of this event.

The legal team with The Driscoll Firm, LLC is ready to listen to your story and help you hold the manufacturer accountable for their negligence. To find out if you may be entitled to compensation, take our Paragard IUD quiz.
