Common Essure injuries
Manufactured by pharmaceutical company Bayer AG, Essure devices were originally marketed at a permanent birth control method which formed a barrier in a women’s reproductive system to safely block sperm from reaching the egg. Essure does not require a surgical incision.
However, since the introduction of Essure, there have been reports of thousands of injuries, according to the FDA. Such injuries include:
- Fragments of Essure device breaking inside women
- Abnormal bleeding
- Organ perforation
- Chronic pain
- Chronic discomfort
Don’t underestimate the seriousness of your injuries. Make sure you see a doctor right away. And make sure you talk to an attorney to explore your legal options.
