Essure Birth Control Lawsuits

Have you suffered complications from a Essure Birth Control Implant? 

We are here to help.

The attorneys at Montgomery Ponder are investigating cases against Bayer Healthcare for the product Essure, which is a birth control device has been linked to serious side effects and complications. Studies show that Essure can allow pregnancy and cause abdominal pain, bleeding, vaginal infection and, in severe cases, death.

 

The Washington Post recently reported, “In recent years he Food and Drug Administration has received more than 16,000 adverse-event reports about Essure. These are official reports about symptoms, hospitalizations or diagnoses that patients, doctors, hospitals or a device manufacturer believe are associated with a device.” To read the full article, please click here. In 2016, the FDA announced that Essure packaging would carry a “black box” warning, which is the FDA’s strictest warning.

 

Essure has numerous medical complications, primarily due to the fact that the inserts contain nickel-titanium alloys, a material known to cause allergic reactions. Once the inserts are placed in the body, they release nickel into the tubes and patients who are allergic to nickel may have serious allergic reactions.

Symptoms of a reaction include rash, itching, and hives. Other common complications include:

  • Device Breakage

  • Movement/Migration of the Device

  • Abdominal Pain

  • Heavier/ Irregular Menstruation

  • Fatigue

  • Weight Change

  • Dyspareunia

 

Hundreds of claims have been filed against Bayer and Conceptus Inc. by women who suffered severe abdominal damage when their Essure birth control device moved and punctured the uterus and fallopian tubes.
