What Is Essure®?

Essure® is a non-surgical, permanent birth control device manufactured by Bayer HealthCare. The device consists of metal coils that are placed at the juncture of the Fallopian tubes and the uterus. Over the course of several months after the coils are placed, scar tissue develops around the site and prevents future implantation and pregnancy. However, recent lawsuits indicate that many women are experiencing serious physical complications related to Essure®, including chronic pain and failure of the devices to prevent pregnancy.

Why Is Essure® The Subject of Lawsuits?

The federal Food and Drug Administration has received thousands of complaints about Essure®. Now, a new series of lawsuits alleges that Bayer knew or should have known about the adverse effects of Essure® and actively concealed these problems from women who might otherwise not have chosen to use the product.

The initial lawsuit alleges that Bayer has intentionally mislead women about the dangers of Essure®. It also states that the company failed to receive pre-market approval from the FDA. Had Bayer gone through the proper procedures, the lawsuit claims, Essure® might never have been offered to patients as a permanent birth control method.

Further, the lawsuit claims that Bayer failed to adequately train physicians to properly implant the coils so that women suffered serious medical issues such as auto-immune and adhesion disorders that led in some cases to hysterectomy.

Women across the country are filing lawsuits against Bayer for problems caused by the Essure® permanent birth control device. If you have suffered medical issues related to Essure®, protect your rights by talking to a personal injury attorney about your case.
