Understanding Essure: What Are The Side Effects?

Essure is a permanent sterilization device for women. It consists of two flexible coils that are permanently implanted in a woman's fallopian tubes, preventing contraception. Although Bayer insists that the device remains safe and effective, the thousands of complaints and Essure lawsuits from injured patients suggest otherwise. This year, the commissioner of the FDA even stated that Bayer was not adequately warning women about the risks of Essure.

Women have reported side effects, including:

  • Severe pelvic pain
  • Abdominal bleeding
  • Autoimmune issues
  • Allergic reactions to the metal in the coils
  • Unwanted pregnancies
  • Migration of the device from the fallopian tubes
  • Emotional suffering
