Women are suing Teva, the owner of Paragard, after their IUDs broke during removal and caused infertility, among other health issues.
Various plaintiffs claim that the device became stuck to the uterine wall and broke apart when the device was removed. This caused severe abdominal pain, pelvic inflammation, infection, and infertility.
There are currently 55 open cases in the United States against Teva that concern the Paragard IUD.
