Paragard Removal Injuries | Paragard Lawyers
Paragard is an intrauterine device (IUD), initially manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals. Now, Paragard is manufactured by Cooper Surgical. Approved by the FDA in 1984, it is used as a long-term birth control device: according to Cooper Surgical, it provides “up to 10 years of Pregnancy Prevention”.
Paragard is a flexible T-shaped IUD that uses “just 1 simple active ingredient–copper–instead of artificial hormones.” Complications in Paragard removals are now being reported after as little as 1 year after the device is inserted in the uterus. In 2015, the Open Journal of Clinical & Medical Case Reports published a study that found 7 issues related to Paragard’s T arm breaking. The complications required a hysteroscopic removal; in the case of one of the participants of the study, it was not possible to remove the T arm.
