What is the Paragard IUD?
Paragard is an intrauterine birth control device (IUD) that uses copper instead of hormones. It is a T-shaped device with copper wound around both arms and the central trunk. The copper produces an inflammatory reaction in the uterus that acts as a spermicide, helping to prevent fertilization.
Paragard removal is marketed as a non-surgical procedure done in minutes during an office visit.
Paragard Can Cause Unexpected Perforation and Injury
Since 2010, the FDA has received more than 2,800 reports of unexpected Paragard breakage, perforation, and migration.
The manufacturer, Teva Pharmaceuticals, is facing lawsuits alleging that it failed to warn patients that Paragard non-hormonal birth control could break during removal.
