If so, you may be entitled to compensation. The deadline to file a claim is approaching!
Essure permanent birth control was manufactured and marketed by Bayer and Conceptus as non-surgical and minimally invasive. Since its introduction to market in 2002, thousands of women in the United States and worldwide have reported serious, and catastrophic injuries because of defects in the Essure product. In fact, Essure has been linked to nearly 30,000 adverse events between 2002 and 2017.
Recently, July 20, 2018, Bayer announced that it would no longer sell Essure in the United States. In 2017, Bayer had stopped selling Essure in all countries except the United States.
Women harmed by Essure are taking a stand; thousands of lawsuits have been filed on their behalf to hold Bayer accountable for failing to warn women of the serious side effects and complications associated with the permanent birth control. If you have endured harm or health dangers due to Essure, this is your time to demand compensation.
What Is Essure and Why Is It Dangerous?
Essure was developed as a birth control device for women who were certain they did not want any more children. Many women chose Essure because the simple process only took 10 minutes without anesthesia, and was promised to prevent all future pregnancies.
However, thousands of women experienced serious health complications after insertion of their Essure implants. The implants contain nickel-titanium alloys, materials known to cause allergic reactions including rashes, itching, swelling and hives. Other complications include:
• Severe chronic pain
• Perforation of the uterus, colon, or tearing of other internal organ
• Ectopic pregnancy
• Device migration or expulsion
• Additional surgeries
