Florida Essure Attorneys
On July 20, 2018 Bayer, the maker of Essure, announced that it would discontinue soled of its Essure Birth control implant by the end of the year. Essure was a permanent birth control device that was introduced into the market the United States in 2002. It is comprised of a small metal coil that is placed into the fallopian tubes. The product’s manufacturers have consistently claimed that the device was a safe and effective form of birth control. Unfortunately, we believe that not to be true. The side effects and complications have been far worse than previously disclosed. Countless women have encountered severe health related injuries as a result of this device.
Understanding the Injuries and Side Effects.
Some of the most common injuries, adverse side effects, and medical complications that have been linked to Essure birth control include:
- Additional surgery
- Chronic headaches
- Menstrual problems
- Joint and muscle pain
- Chronic lower back pain
- Allergic reactions
- Unintended pregnancy/miscarriages
- Migration of the device
- Internal bleeding
- Perforation of the uterus/fallopian tubes
Additionally, surgery is often required to remove the defective Essure birth control device that has migrated or perforated. In some instances that results in serious adverse consequences — potentially even life threatening.
