WHAT IS PARAGARD?
Paragard is a non-hormonal IUD (intrauterine device) used for long-term birth control. This device is shaped like a “T”, is wrapped in copper coil and is inserted into a woman’s uterus to prevent pregnancy. This type of device can last up to 10 years in the body. Paragard is manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals and is the only non-hormonal IUD on the market.
WHAT ARE THE MAJOR INJURIES?
While there is currently no recall of the IUD, there are plenty of lawsuits against the manufacturers of the device. These lawsuits have been filed due to the devices breaking and fragmenting off into other parts of the body as it is removed. Issues removing the device can cause infections, scarring, and ectopic pregnancies. Teva is being held responsible for creating a defective device as well as for failing to warn about its dangers.
