Over 5,000 women have reported devastating complications to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), about the Essure System for Permanent Birth Control, a medical device implanted in a woman’s body to permanently prevent pregnancy. Side effects can be life-threatening and may include:
- Persistent pain following insertion
- Severe bleeding
- Allergic reactions to the nickel in the implant
- Piercing of the uterus or fallopian tubes
- Migration of the insert to other parts of the body
- Unplanned pregnancy
If you or someone you love has been harmed from an Essure birth control implant, you may be entitled to compensation.
How Does Essure Work?
The implant is made of coils and inserted by a doctor into each fallopian tube, blocking sperm from entering. Essure has been a popular choice for female sterilization since the procedure doesn’t require surgery and the device does not release hormones. However, as recent reports to the FDA show, thousands of women have stepped forward, claiming the device caused them painful health problems.
Why Is This Dangerous Product on the Market?
The original manufacturers of Essure, Conceptus, Inc., are under investigation for allegedly committing fraud during clinical trials, when rushing the device to the market. One allegation describes a woman who claimed to have severe pain after having Essure implanted, only to have her condition reported as “excellent.”
Now, certain members of Congress are fighting to take Essure off the market for good – before it harms even more women.
