The Serious Risks Associated with Essure

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first approved the Essure birth control device in 2002. However, the number of women who have been harmed by the device has grown to the point that the FDA put Essure under intense scrutiny. Thousands of women have come forth saying they were seriously injured and many of them want the FDA to pull Essure off the market for good.

A Long List of Issues

Essure has been linked to the following complications:

  • Device expulsion and migration to other areas of the body
  • Pain during sexual intercourse as well as menstruation
  • Perforated fallopian tubes

Horror stories abound from women who have been harmed due to this device. Lawsuits across the country have been filed, with plaintiffs claiming that Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Essure, failed to properly warn healthcare providers and patients of the potential dangers.

For example, women have reported severe pain and continual bleeding long after having the device implanted, while others have reported pain so severe they have a hard time performing even everyday tasks. In some instances, women have suffered symptoms similar to the flu and their doctors have been unable to get to the true cause of their problem for years. Some women have even had to undergo extensive surgery in order to finally find relief.
