Some women do not want to have children. For some women, it is too dangerous. Whatever the reason may be, a non-surgical permanent birth control can sound highly appealing. It can be tiring taking pills and getting a surgical procedure can be scary. That is why when Essure® first came on the market, it appealed to many. Unfortunately, since its release, thousands of women have reported pain and injury because of the device.
Essure® is a device that causes permanent sterilization. It consists of metal coils and polyester fibers. The coils are inserted into a woman’s fallopian tubes. Over a three-month period, the device causes an inflammatory response that creates scar tissue. This creates a barrier between eggs and sperm, thus preventing insemination. However, this process has been linked to many side effects. If you suffered injuries because of Essure®, you may have a claim!
What an Essure® Lawsuit Claim Consists Of
Since releasing the birth control device, Bayer HealthCare has received thousands of suits against them for Essure®. Many women have reported physical and emotional damages sustained because of the device. Here is what you need to ask yourself if you believe you have a claim:
- Did you have an Essure® device implanted?
- Have you suffered adverse side effects because of the device?
- Did you need to be hospitalized or need corrective surgery after using Essure®?
- Did the birth control device cause punctures or ruptures to your organs?
