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.
