Paragard Lawsuit Claims, Payouts & Settlements

Schmidt National Law Group is accepting new Paragard lawsuit claims against Cooper Surgical over the potential risks of this IUD.  

We expect these new Paragard IUD lawsuit claims will have substantial cash payouts from settlements.  Our Paragard lawyers and attorneys have been recently receiving phone call reports from women alleging IUD side effects including device migrating, broken arms of the device, getting embedded in the uterus, and other complications.

Update: June 3, 2021- Paragard IUD Breakage: We have currently updated the numbers on problems with Paragard using the FDA’s Adverse Events Reporting System (FAERS) Public Dashboard.

It’s important to note that if the device suffers from any breakage, either from failure or during removal, some parts may not be seen by the doctor or nurse. When this takes place an X-ray must be performed to locate the broken parts and surgery to remove those parts.

According to the report the following numbers show all adverse reports on the Paragard T 380A Copper IUD.

Number of Total Cases: 40,716

  • Device Expulsion – 11,054
  • Device Dislocation – 9,240
  • Device Breakage – 3,290
  • Embedded Device – 1,860
  • Device Issue – 335
  • Device Deployment Issue – 331
  • Device Material Issue – 251
  • Device Malfunction – 59

The current Paragard TV commercials would have women believe that this device is a safe and effective type of non-hormonal birth control device, but don’t be fooled by slick advertising by Big Pharma companies.

We have just heard from a women who suffered one terrible side effect from Paragard, the device migrated through her body and was found via CT scan, lodged in her cranium.

What is the Paragard IUD?

Paragard was one of the earliest intrauterine devices (IUD) used for contraception introduced to the market in the United States. It earned US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval in 1984 and was sponsored, at the time, by the Population Council, a nonprofit headquartered in New York City that conducts research to address critical health and development issues for the world’s most vulnerable populations.

How does Paragard IUD work?

Paragard is still the only copper IUD on the US market. It is a small, T-shaped device that is inserted into the uterus by a healthcare provider to protect against pregnancy for up to 10 years. It is a non-hormonal device, unlike other IUDs like Mirena. Instead of hormones, Paragard contains a copper coil that interferes with the movement of sperm and prevents sperm from reaching an egg. No fertilized egg means no pregnancy. 

Problems or Complications from Paragard IUD

What are the problems and/or complications women have been experiencing?  Many are seeing medical treatments for the following IUD side effects.

  • Device breakage or fracture
  • Device embedment
  • Device expulsion or migration
  • Scarring or inflammation of uterus

When seeing medical treatments for the Paragard IUD the general choices are as follows:

  • Ongoing nonsurgical treatment
  • Surgery to remove device
  • Surgery failed to remove device
  • Hysterectomy to remove device

Risks of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease with IUDs

IUDs like Paragard are associated with an increased risk of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), a serious complication that can lead to death if not diagnosed and treated promptly. PID is an infection of the female reproductive organs. It can have serious consequences if not treated, including damage to the fallopian tubes leading to ectopic pregnancy or infertility, hysterectomy, sepsis, and even death. 

Symptoms of PID include:

  • Lower abdominal or pelvic pain
  • Odorous discharge
  • Unexplained bleeding
  • Fever
  • Genital lesions or sores

Risks of Device Expulsion of IUD

There is a risk that Paragard may be expelled from the uterus, which makes the IUD less effective and could result in unintended pregnancy. A healthcare provider may need to take x-rays if Paragard is no longer found in the uterus. The IUD must be removed if expulsion occurs. 

Timeline for the Paragard IUD Lawsuits.

We began receiving phone call reports in early October 2020. There are no Paragard lawsuits in the court system yet. The MDL (Multidistrict Litigation) hasn’t begun yet for this birth control device, but we do expect this to happen based on other birth control device litigation, like what took place for Essure.
