CALL US NOW FOR IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT THIS DEFECTIVE IUD
When a woman chooses an intrauterine device (known as an IUD) as her trusted form of birth control, she relies on the medical company who makes and sells the IUD device to provide her with a safe and properly studied and tested IUD product. She also relies on that medical company to adequately inform her and her doctors and medical providers with accurate information on the severity of all potential risks associated with the IUD. Unfortunately, this was not done with the IUD known as Paragard®, and thousands of women and health professionals have reported severe complications involving the Paragard®.IUD to the United States Food & Drug Administration (FDA).

MORE ABOUT PARAGARD
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA), who approves the use of medical devices in the U.S., first approved the Paragard® IUD for use in the United States in 2004. The FDA approved revisions for Paragard’s prescribing label in 2005, expanding the type of recommended patients from women in monogamous relationships with at least one child, to women in all stages of reproductive life. However, the warnings about the complications from Paragard were insufficient to inform women of all of the risks associated with the IUD.
What Is Paragard
Paragard is a T-shaped, hormone-free, IUD device made of flexible plastic with a thin layer of copper that serves as the device’s active ingredient by preventing sperm from reaching the egg and fertilizing it. The device is placed inside the uterus to prevent pregnancy. According to the manufacturer, Cooper Surgical, formerly owned by Teva, the IUD is removable, and can last up to 10 years,
