Paragard is a T-shaped, non-hormonal intrauterine birth control device. It is the only non-hormonal IUD available in the United States. Instead of using hormones to prevent pregnancy, Paragard uses the copper wire that is wound around the base of the device. IUDs must be inserted into the uterus and remain there to be effective and safe. An IUD has strings attached to it that are used to help ensure the IUD is still in place.
Unfortunately, Paragard IUDs can have many side-effects. More minor side effects, like cramping and bleeding between periods, are common and should not be any cause for concern. However, more severe symptoms can mean that something is very wrong. According to the Mayo Clinic, these symptoms include:
- Unexplained Fever;
- Heavy vaginal bleeding;
- Abnormal vaginal discharge smell;
- Severe pelvic and abdominal pain that gets worse over time; or
- Bleeding and pain during or after sexual intercourse.
If you experience any of these symptoms, you should contact your health care provider immediately.
It is also important that you seek medical advice immediately if you have a Paragard IUD and think you might be demonstrating symptoms of pregnancy; or have received a positive result on a home pregnancy test. Symptoms, like those listed above, can be indicative of a much larger problem. Some of these problems include:
- The IUD has become displaced and may be expelled, or implanted into the wall of the uterus.
- One of the arms of the T-shaped IUD has broken and has become implanted into the tissues of any of the reproductive organs.
- The IUD has been ineffective, resulting in the possibility of an unplanned pregnancy.
The most serious complications occur when the IUD or part of the IUD implants into the tissues of the uterus, injures the cervix or vagina, or is expelled from the womb and damages surrounding organs. While many implantation complications can be resolved with a simple procedure, sometimes they require invasive surgery. This surgery can lead to complications like infertility or require a doctor to perform a hysterectomy, a procedure that involves the complete removal of the uterus.
If you have suffered a serious personal injury from a complication with your Paragard IUD, you may be entitled to compensation. Lawsuits allege that one of the manufacturers of Paragard failed to warn about the potential for breakage of the device.

While many lawsuits against Paragard allege serious personal injury as a result of breakage, others believe that Paragard loses its effectiveness over time. Paragard IUDs claim to have a ten-year lifespan, but some argue that, as the copper wears down, the birth control is less effective, possibly leading to an unplanned pregnancy. If you become pregnant while you have a Paragard IUD inserted, the pregnancy can become very dangerous. In some instances, an ectopic pregnancy can occur. An ectopic pregnancy occurs when a fertilized egg implants outside of the uterus, most commonly in the fallopian tubes. An ectopic pregnancy is not viable and can lead to serious, life-threatening complications for the mother. Ectopic pregnancies can also lead to future infertility.
If you suffered an ectopic pregnancy while you had your Paragard IUD in place, you might be entitled to compensation.
