Ectopic pregnancy due to IUD

Pregnancy developing in the fallopian tube as a result of contraceptive devices

Success story

Carly had an Mirena Intra-Uterine System (IUD) fitted in November 2004. Three months later she developed severe lower abdominal pain and was diagnosed as having an ectopic pregnancy. Her left fallopian tube was removed. She alleged that the Drug Company who makes Mirena should pay her compensation. However, PMS Expert Report concluded that there was no negligence involved. Ectopic pregnancy is a small risk of the IUD, occurring in 1 in 5000 women who use it for a year. This is unfortunate but unavoidable. The case was dismissed.
