Paragard IUD was presented as a hormone free birth control device. Paragard IUD was marketed and sold as a reversable birth control device. Recent FDA studies have indicated that the Paragard IUD could fracture or break and cause injuries. These injuries may require surgery to completely remove any remaining Paragard IUD parts. Broken parts of the Paragard IUD have the ability to perforate the uterus wall and may also cause infection, scaring or damage to other organs.
These surgeries may be invasive and, in some cases, require a hysterectomy.
