Paragard is a relatively new and treatment that are aimed at reducing the Paragard iud implant cost. iud is an abbreviation for the intrauterine device that many women have inserted to reduce the pelvic pain and pressure during labor and delivery. The device is inserted into the uterus via the vagina and the fallopian tubes so that the procedure can be carried out as per normal. However, since the treatment requires insertion into the uterus and thus a vaginal insertion can be quite painful, Paragard was designed with two implants that are placed close together. The Paragard procedure was first launched in France in 1992 but it has only recently got the go ahead in the United States.
Normally the Paragard and settlement amounts are around three thousand dollars each and the company claims that they will settle for up to six thousand dollars if possible. But as this iud treatment is new and very few medical practitioners have tried this procedure, there is still a chance that the final settlement amounts will be much less than what the initial surgery was meant to be. Paragard has two different procedures to get rid of the scar tissue that has formed at the surgery site and these procedures are called ‘procedure littorale’. This procedure involves making a small incision in the lower abdomen which is done to remove excess tissue and also the stone that has lodged itself at the uterine area. The other procedure involves ‘procedure autologous’ which means that the stone is taken from the patient’s own body and sent back to the doctor so that he or she can dispose of it.
These two procedures are usually carried out by the doctor and are then followed by follow up visits by the patients to their medical practitioner for scheduled follow ups. During these visits, the medical practitioner can see if the procedure has worked and if not, he or she may recommend a repeat procedure or else change the treatment. Paragard is a good treatment because it has no known side effects but this is only if you go to a reputable and experienced medical practitioner. The problem with Paragard is that it has not yet been approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) and therefore cannot be sold over the counter, even though it has been approved by the medical community worldwide. It is best that you talk to your medical practitioner first before deciding on a treatment for this condition.
