Are you a woman who has suffered from a punctured wound in your uterus and fallopian tube due to a defectively designed Essure® implant (a permanent birth control device)? You may be eligible to file a lawsuit against Bayer Healthcare, the manufacturer of Essure®.
What is Essure®?
Essure® is a birth control device consisting of two metal coils. It is a different form of tubal ligation. A gynecologist implants it in the fallopian tube of a woman to block eggs from moving through the fallopian tubes and prevent fertilization. However, due to defective design and the faulty insertion, women can receive a punctured wound in their uterus and fallopian tubes.
Essure® lawsuit claims
Over 16,000 lawsuits have been filed against the manufacturer of Essure®. Plaintiff lawyers claimed that Bayer Healthcare had marketed and supplied defectively designed Essure®. Many lawsuits claimed that the manufacturer did not warn the patients of the potential risks and severe complications lying in implanting this device. Many women, who used it for birth control, suffered injuries like organ damage, revision surgery, back pain, pelvic pain, allergic reactions, chronic pain, and autoimmune disorders. Moreover, many people have received mild and severe side effects and complications after getting Essure® implants. Many others required immediate additional surgeries to remove the Essure® and repair organs damaged by it.
Below are different types of side effects and complications that one can receive after having this birth control implant:
- Additional surgeries
- Brain fog
- Autoimmune disorders
- Metal allergies
- Chronic fatigue
- Hair loss
- Back pain
- Rashes or itching
- Severe or chronic pain
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Scar tissue
- Unintended or unwanted pregnancy
- Weight loss or gain
- Fetal death
- Perforation of the uterus, colon or another organ
- Device breakage migration or expulsion
As the consequence of this, the manufacturing company Bayer has decided to stop selling the product (Essure®) in the U.S. by the end of 2018. The company has declared it officially in July 2018.
