More than half a million American women have chosen the Essure® birth control device over traditional tubal ligation surgeries since its introduction in 2002. Marketed as a convenient, permanent form of birth control, the way Essure works is simple. After a non-invasive procedure to place the device, scar tissue forms in the fallopian tubes to block sperm and prevent fertilization.
However, as the device’s popularity has grown, reports of painful side effects, unintended pregnancies, complications requiring surgery to correct, and even death have also increased. Our law firm is now helping Essure injury victims take legal action.
If you or someone you love used Essure and experienced severe pain, unintended pregnancy, or device breakage, call or contact us online for a free case review. You may be eligible for compensation for your medical bills, lost wages, and pain and suffering, but your time to file a lawsuit is limited. Our legal team is standing by to help you get started now.
Essure® Birth Control Side Effects
Side effects reported by women who have used Essure include:
- Implant breakage inside the body
- Migration of the device within the body
- Perforation (puncture) of internal organs
- Constant pelvic/abdominal pain
- Unintended pregnancy with injury to baby
- Late-term miscarriage
- Persistent bleeding
- Extreme bloating
Removal of the Essure implant requires surgery, and many women harmed by the device must also undergo painful hysterectomies, partial hysterectomies, and other abdominal surgeries to get better. Our attorneys understand the physical, emotional, and financial damage caused by Essure injuries, and we’re here to fight for you.
FDA Issues Essure® Black Box Warning
The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) ordered Bayer, Essure’s manufacturer, to conduct a new clinical study to evaluate the device’s risk to patients. In addition, Essure packaging will feature a black box warning—the strictest warning prescription drugs and medical devices can carry—to alert patients of potentially harmful or fatal side effects.
