Essure is a permanent birth control device manufactured by Bayer. It is inserted into the Fallopian tubes, with the goal of creating scarring. This scarred tissue would in theory block the release of eggs. However, according to several thousand lawsuits, the device is not working as intended, and is instead creating severely painful side effects.
According to these complaints, many women who received the birth control device suffer from extreme pain. The problem is that these devices are migrating out of the Fallopian tubes and puncturing other organs in the body. They can implant inside the uterus and vaginal wall, which is extremely painful. Other complaints allege that the device broke down into small pieces and caused harm throughout their bodies. In December of 2018, Bayer announced that it would stop selling the device. Many women have elected to remove the device or have the procedure reversed. This requires either an outpatient procedure or a hysterectomy.
It’s not too late! Litigation is still ongoing for Essure lawsuits. If you’ve suffered because of an Essure birth control implant, you could be compensated for: Pain and suffering Costs of receiving the implant Costs of implant being removed Lost wages if you had to take time off work Any other costs, damages, and losses incurred by Essure side effects If a defective product causes injury, the makers of that product should be held accountable. It costs nothing to explore your rights and options for compensation. Call 888-367-1611 or submit a form on this page to contact Marc Whitehead and learn more about your next steps.
Well Essure is a permanent birth control device. Basically it is two wire coils that are to be inserted into a woman's Fallopian tubes to develop scarring to basically block the Fallopian tubes and block eggs from traveling down the Fallopian tubes. So the problem with the Essure devices is that they can migrate out of the Fallopian tubes and end up puncturing various parts of a woman's body. They can migrate and implant into the uterus and the vaginal wall and cause severe pain, and women are having to have hysterectomies. So right now there is a mass tort litigation that is proceeding against Bayer AG, the manufacturer of the Essure devices. And this litigation seeks to compensate these women for the pain and suffering that they've undergone through the unneeded and unnecessary hysterectomy that they've had to undergo, basically forcing them into pre menopause or full menopause stages in their life that are premature.
