The Essure lawsuit has had over 15,000 women filed against the manufacture Bayer. It is claimed they did not warn patients of the potential risks involved with getting the implant done.
Essure is a birth control that is implanted into the fallopian tubes. This device consists of coils that prevent eggs from moving through the tubes, thus preventing pregnancy. Unfortunately, many women have experienced severe side effects after having the implant done, such as
- Abnormal Bleeding
- Migration of the device
- Device breaking
- Organ perforation
- Additional Surgeries
- Chronic Pain
The device is said to be noninvasive with quick recovery times, but women who have had the implant done, are claiming the device has caused permanent damage.
In 2016, the FDA had received more then 10,000 different events relating to the device and issued Bayer to conduct a new clinical trial to address concerns about the risks of the device. Shortly after, the FDA required a black box warning to be added the Essure’s device labels. More recently in 2018, Bayer announced they would discontinue the sale of their Essure Device.
