We know that women have a myriad of contraceptive devices to choose from, and you try to find the option that best suits your needs but more importantly is presumed safe. For many, the Paragard® IUD was thought to be that option. Instead, thousands of women and healthcare providers have reported to the FDA severe complications, including death, allegedly believed to be caused by the Paragard® IUD. Call us today to find out more about the Paragard® IUD Lawsuit.
Paragard® has been marketed to be the only birth control that has been FDA approved for over 30 years, as well as being 100% hormone free; over 99% effective; and contains just one simple ingredient – Cooper. The Paragard® IUD device is recommended by the FDA for women in all stages of reproductive life to prevent pregnancy. The device is inserted into the uterus and is removable and can stay implanted for up to ten years.
