Need a lawyer for a Essure lawsuit?
Birth control offers a method of empowering women, men and couples to make informed decisions about family planning. Whether a contraceptive offers permanent or temporary birth control measures, it only truly gives the user power when manufacturers are honest about potential side effects. For users of Essure, that honest disclosure was not offered and now, many of their lives have been devastated as a result.
Essure: Changing Permanent Birth Control
A 2008 study that appeared in Reviews in Obstetrics and Gynecology found that sterilization was one of the most popular methods of birth control in the United States, with more than 27 percent of women choosing female sterilization as a permanent contraceptive. For many years, a woman’s only sterilization options were tubal ligation and hysterectomy, which are done through intra-abdominal access while the patient is under general anesthesia. Not only are these choices both highly invasive, but they carry great risks.
In 2002 and alternate form of permanent contraception was introduced by Bayer. Essure, Bayer’s new solution, is a non-hormonal form of permanent contraception that requires no cuts in the abdomen and no general anesthesia. Instead, a coil is inserted into the fallopian tubes while in a physician’s office. These coils prompt the growth of scar tissue, which then ensures that sperm can’t reach a woman’s eggs.
Hidden and Unintended Consequences of Essure
Women choosing Essure knew they might be in for some pain and cramping, bleeding and nausea. Since these risks were disclosed, they had the power to weigh them and decide to take the chance. The problem is that there were many devastating potential side effects that were not disclosed. These included migration of the implant, sometimes requiring hysterectomy to correct, puncturing of the fallopian tubes, obesity and breakage of the Essure implants.
If you chose Essure as a way of responsible family planning, then you may have been exposed to terrible, unexpected side effects that can have a drastic and lasting effect on your health. By uniting together, the women and families who’ve been affected may be able to help prove that the company fraudulently withheld important information from the FDA.
