Protecting your health.
IUD’s have become one of the most popular forms of birth control. Their convenience makes them a popular choice for women who have had children in the past, or women simply needing an easy form of birth control. An IUD is inserted by a gynecologist into the woman’s uterus. They typically stay in place for anywhere from 3-5 years without needing to be changed. One of the most popular IUD’s is the Paragard IUD. Paragard and Mirena have been used by women for many years.
Part of the attractiveness of the Paragard IUD is its hormone-free makeup. Recent studies have shown women experiencing Paragard breaking inside of them. This is extremely dangerous and can cause major damage to the uterus. If you or a loved one have experienced the negative effects of the Paragard IUD, we are here to help.

Paragard is a long-term birth control device. It is only of the only hormone-free IUD options on the market today. Made of copper, it works as a spermicide inside the uterus to protect against unwanted pregnancy. Unlike other forms of birth control, Paragard can only be inserted by a doctor.
On the market since 1984, recent studies have shown injuries linked to specifically the Paragard IUD. Attested to by the makers of Paragard, women have complained of the IUD getting stuck and needing to be surgically removed from the uterus. Paragard has also been known to get lost inside the uterus.
In many recent cases, Paragard was found to have been broken inside the uterus. These resulted in damages to the wall of the uterus, along with extensive surgery and in some cases, hysteroscopy.
While Paragard is still on the market, it is important to note the dangers of this type of birth control and possible health complications that can result.
