Paragard® Intrauterine Device

Paragard Case Evaluation Paragard® is an intrauterine device (IUD) inserted into a woman’s uterus as a form of birth control. The Cooper Companies has manufactured and distributed Paragard® since 2017 when they acquired the rights to the device from Teva Pharmaceutical Industries for approximately $1.1 billion. The IUD is not permanent and is designed to be retrieved from the uterus by a doctor at the end of the device’s life or earlier should a woman no longer want or require birth control.

Device Fracture and other Paragard® Health Risks

Paragard® has been linked to a series of health problems, most of which are associated with device fracture while implanted or during retrieval. The device is made of plastic (polyethylene and barium sulfate) and wrapped in thin copper coils. There are cases of both components of the device fracturing leading to serious injury. In some cases, device fracture as left women unable to have children in the future. When Paragard® does fracture, pieces may become lodged within a woman’s body. Removal of these broken pieces can require extensive and invasive surgery including hysterectomy.

If you or a loved one has suffered any of the following problems or injuries, you may be a candidate to file a Paragard® lawsuit:

  • Broken or Fractured Paragard®
  • Movement or Migration of the Device
  • Paragard® Embedded in the Uterus or Other Organ/Tissue
  • Additional Surgery to Remove a Fractured or Migrated Device
