ParaGard IUD Can Break & Lead to Injuries and Removal Surgeries

ParaGard IUD is a hormone-free, copper IUD that can provide long-term birth control. ParaGard is placed in the uterus by a physician to prevent contraception for up to 10-years. It is often referred to as a “set it and forget it” birth control. Unfortunately, though that is not the case. There have been several reports of significant injuries related to the removal of ParaGard IUD.

To remove the ParaGard IUD, physicians are instructed to locate the strings and pull gently until the IUD is expelled from the uterus. The ParaGard IUD arms are supposed to fold upward to aid in removal, but the arms will instead break at the joint during removal. Physicians have found the copper T-arms lodged in the uterus or in some cases have perforated the uterus. This requires additional medical treatments, like laparoscopic surgery or hysteroscopy, to remove the broke ParaGard IUD and repair the damage done by the broken parts. In rare cases, women have had to undergo devastating full hysterectomies.

What is ParaGard IUD?

ParaGard IUD is marketed as the non-surgical and hormone free IUD. It works differently than other IUDs because it is hormone free. ParaGard is a T-shaped plastic frame made of polyethylene and barium sulfate that is inserted into the uterus. ParaGard has copper wire coiled around the IUD, which produces an inflammatory reaction that is toxic to sperm and egg.

It is alleged that the manufacturers were aware that ParaGard had a propensity to break at the T-joints during removal such that the arms break off and can require further treatment, like surgery to remove the ParaGard T-arms.
