Carly Humbert, a YouTube beauty blogger, discussed her terrible experiences online and warned others about using Mirena IUD. Humbert said she researched the Mirena IUD as one of her options for birth control. She decided to use Mirena because it was convenient and she did not have to take a pill every day. However, she began to experience harmful side effects after being implanted with the device. Unfortunately, Humbert is not the only one and thousands of other victims have filed Mirena IUD lawsuits from allegedly suffering harmful side effects after being implanted with the device.
What Types Of Side Effects Did She Experience?
After being implanted with Mirena, Humbert experienced severe cramping that she stated was the worst pain she ever felt in her life. Also, days after, she developed large, red, cystic acne all over her face, that could not be treated by skincare products. Her dermatologist immediately made the connection between the acne and her IUD, which apparently caused a hormonal imbalance. Humbert talked about how depressed she got due to her appearance. On top of these issues, she also started to experience migraine headaches, this was all that she could take. She asked her gynecologist to remove the IUD. Six months later, her acne cleared up and her other problems disappeared as well.
Why Are Victims Turing to Social Media?
Social media is empowering consumers with the ability to raise their voices against dangerous and defective products. In the days prior to social media, consumers did not hear of these stories until the newspaper decided to cover it or the local TV channel decided to do a program on it. But, now, word about defective devices can spread instantaneously through social media and victims now have the ability to warn others about potentially dangerous products before they can cause additional harm. One common problem reported by women online include the IUD traveling from its intended place in the cervix and perforating organs or embedding in the uterus. Some women have to go through surgery to have these IUDs removed.
