Some of the common dangerous side effects of Mirena IUD implantation include uterine wall perforations, ectopic pregnancy, infertility, and other serious complications. Mirena can harm the uterus because it can migrate from its original position after being inserted, embedding itself in the uterus or perforating the uterus wall. This then can lead to further complications such as infection, intestinal obstruction, organ damage, and adhesions and internal scarring. Whether the Mirena device embeds itself in the uterus or perforates the uterine wall, both scenarios would require a doctor to locate the IUD and surgically remove it. Depending on the extent of damage related to the uterine wall perforation, a complete hysterectomy may be required to the patient.
