Birth Control & IUDs

Were You Injured After Using Birth Control?

For some women, using birth control pills is like taking a daily vitamin: It is all part of a routine. When taking birth control pills or using an IUD or other implantable device, you trust that the device will fulfill its purpose. The last thing you expect is for you to be hurt by the device.

But sometimes these drugs or devices are defective. Defective IUDs not only cause pain, but also can lead to infection. A pelvic infection can spread to the fallopian tubes and leave scar tissue, causing infertility. Certain birth control pills have been found to contain the hormone drospirenone, which has been linked to side effects like blood clots, stroke, heart attacks and even death.

If you have an implantable contraceptive or are taking birth control pills and have noticed substantial side effects, you may have received a defective device or dangerous prescription. We can help. At Trolman, Glaser & Lichtman, P.C., our attorneys will represent patients who have been harmed by dangerous birth control prescriptions and defective implants. We work with an experienced team in bringing product liability lawsuits in courts throughout New York State.

We fight, you win.

How Do You Know if Your Contraceptive Is Defective?

The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a warning that women taking birth control pills that contain drospirenone should watch for signs of constant leg pain, severe chest pain, shortness of breath or continued pain in the upper right abdomen that lasts for 30 minutes or more.
