Can Mirena be fatal?

While implantation of the device itself is not fatal, shifting or migration of the device after insertion can cause life-threatening complications that may result in death if not treated quickly and properly. For instance, sepsis is an infection that could be fatal. Other complications such as perforation of the uterus can cause potentially fatal organ damage and an ecotopic pregnancy can kill a mother if not treated in time.
