What is Essure Birth Control?
Essure is a non-hormonal, permanent birth control device that is only available by prescription. Its structure was designed to be nonreversible, providing women with an alternative solution to surgical forms of birth control. Essure consists of two metal coils that are flexible and implanted in the fallopian tube. While Bayer claims the device is safe and effective, more than 10,000 disagree saying they experienced serious injuries including perforation of the fallopian tube, severe cramping and abdominal pain and device migration.
Dangerous Effects of Essure
Complaints received by the FDA regarding the adverse side effects of Essure has prompted them to provide recommendations to health care providers and patients of when to avoid using the product. Severe side effects include organ perforation and device migration, while more mild effects such as headaches, nausea and abdominal pain are also common in women who receive this device.
Why File Suit Against Essure
Women who have suffered severe side effects from using Essure claim Bayer failed to warm them, and the FDA, of the adverse side effects the device causes. Lawsuits allege that Bayer lied to the FDA during its premarket application by withholding pertinent data. Today, Essure litigation is slowly taking place through individual lawsuits in various states.
