The ParaGard is manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals and has been around since the late 1980s. An intrauterine device (IUD) is a small plastic T-shaped device used for birth control. It is inserted into the uterus where it stays to prevent pregnancy. It's a small piece of flexible plastic shaped like a T. Sometimes it is called an IUC — intrauterine contraception. The Paragard IUD device has a specially designed copper coil connected to a plastic base. The device is implanted in a women's uterine cavity. Some people who have used ParaGard IUD birth control have complained that they suffered significant and unexpected ParaGard IUD removal complications when attempting to have the birth control device removed. Read on for more information.
How Does the ParaGard IUD Work?
ParaGard works using just 1 simple active ingredient which is copper. Paragard works by preventing the sperm from reaching and fertilizing the egg and may also prevent implantation. However, because ParaGard is hormone free, it will not prevent your natural menstrual cycle or stop you from ovulating each month. At first, periods may become heavier and longer with spotting in between.
Broken IUD Causes
Serious production defects have led to broken IUDs, with the breakage occurring either during the implantation process or during removal. According to ongoing ParaGard IUD lawsuits, Teva was aware of the potential breakage that could occur from the defective IUDs during implantation and removal.
ParaGard Removal Side Effects
Some typical ParaGard removal side effects include light bleeding between periods, cramping, pain, and heavy bleeding during periods. Several ParaGard IUD users have reported that the device can also reportedly break during removal, leaving part of the device embedded in the uterus, according to a report published in the Open Journal of Clinical & Medical Case Reports. Some of the complications caused by a broken or fractured IUD, or other ParaGard removal side effects, include:
