I have had the Mirena for five years. When I went in to have it out, the string was not present. Had to get an ultra sound and nothing. Then an xray which showed it had gone into the abdomen. I have to have surgery to get it removed. What cost me $100.00 to get in will cost me close or more than $3,000 out of pocket to get out. Has anybody had this problem? I would like to sue just of for the cost of the removal.
