Have you or a loved one suffered injury caused by a broken Paragard IUD?

You may be entitled to significant financial compensation.

Patients have reported the arms of the Paragard IUD have broken off during removal.  The pieces may then embed in the uterus and other organs, and in some cases perforate the uterus.  

Lawsuits claim Teva Pharmaceuticals and The Cooper Companies failed to warn patients and doctors of the possibility of device breakage due to the plastic becoming weak and inflexible over time.

What is a Paragard IUD?

An IUD or intrauterine device, prevents prevents pregnancy by preventing sperm from reaching and fertilizing eggs.   It is “T” shaped and fits inside of the uterus. 

The Paragard IUD, manufacturered by Teva Pharmaceuticals, uses copper instead of hormones.  The copper is wound around the main stem and arms of the device.  The IUD is placed in the uterus during a routine office visit and can last for up to 10 years.


Some patients have experienced a broken or fractured IUD during the process of removal.  

The broken pieces may then embed in the uterus and other organs, and in some cases perforate the uterus.  

In two reported cases, the copper wire was missing from the device following removal.  Surgery was recommended to remove the missing fragments.
