The Fight Against Essure – You Are Not Alone
Whoever said there is strength in numbers was absolutely correct. Women are coming together in large numbers to hold Bayer AG and its subsidiary, Conceptus, Inc., accountable for the side effects of their popular permanent birth control method, Essure®.
Essure® was designed to provide women with a non-invasive method of taking charge of their reproductive choices. During the Essure® procedure, small, flexible coils are inserted into the fallopian tubes. Once placed, these coils form a barrier of scar tissue which blocks sperm from traveling into the fallopian tubes and resulting in pregnancy.
Large numbers of women who opted for this birth control method have experienced a range of side effects and serious complications, including:
- Chronic Pelvic Pain
- Bacterial Vaginosis or Other Infection
- Hives and Rashes
- Ovarian Cysts
- Excessive Bleeding During Period
- Painful Periods
- Prolonged Menstrual Cycles
Have you experienced any of these symptoms following the implantation of Essure®? You are not alone. Women all over the U.S. are outraged because they were not informed of the potential harm of the Essure® device. They are banding together to hold the manufacturer accountable for their pain and suffering. The first thing you should do when experiencing adverse health conditions after an Essure® procedure is consult a doctor immediately. The second thing you should do is seek legal counsel. Don’t delay; the time to file a claim may be limited.
