Civil Lawsuit Filed Against Essure Birth Control

The first lawsuit has been filed against Bayer HealthCare because of alleged complications caused by permanent birth control device, Essure.

Essure, which received FDA approval in 2002, works by inserting small metal coils into the fallopian tubes. The coils cause scar tissue that then closes the tube and completes sterilization. When it was first introduced, it was hailed as a cheaper and safer option for sterilization that could be done in a doctor’s office rather than surgical suite.

Thousands of women have now reported side effects which are believed to be attributed to Essure, including hysterectomies, colon perforations, unexpected pregnancies, depression, and weight gain. Women have also reported side effects due to a nickel allergy. For other women, scans have revealed that the device has disappeared.

The FDA has received more than 4,800 adverse event reports since the device went to market in 2002 and a Facebook page dedicated to the issue has grown to more than 17,000 members.

Bayer reports that the company has sold 750,000 Essure units worldwide.

If you or a loved one suffered complications as a result of Essure birth control, you may be entitled to monetary compensation.
