America here’s factual proof women are losing their lives due to reproductive health procedures, medical-devices and drugs. How many more women, children, men have to die before something is done. It doesn’t matter if it’s one life or two or thousands, everyone deserves the right to live. Healthcare professionals such as the FDA should be more mindful of a human life. There’s also another twist in the socio-economic disparities between White, Latino, Black and Asians.

Complications of Mirena IUD
Uterine Damage – If Mirena falls out of place it can become lodged in the uterine wall. This is called perforation. Surgery to remove the Mirena device may be required. Other complications, as indicated by RxList.com, from perforation may include the obstruction of the intestines, perforation of the intestines and the development of scar tissue wherever the device embeds itself.
During insertion, germs or bacteria may enter the uterus and cause pelvic-inflammatory disease (PID). PID is a serious infection and can be transmitted sexually. Complications of the disease include infertility, ectopic pregnancy, or constant pelvic pain, according to the FDA. Some women require nothing more than antibiotic treatment and the removal of the IUD, but other women may need a hysterectomy to remove the uterus. In rare cases, PID leads to further complications that can result in death.
