Georgia Essure Birth Control Injury Attorney

What is Essure?

In the past, when women decided they would rather not have children, the only permanent solution was tubal ligation surgery. The Essure birth control device was designed as a permanent birth control solution that doesn’t require invasive surgical procedures. However, a significant number of patients using the device have experienced severe product defects that have affected their quality of life.

Potential Side Effects

Reports of serious complications following the Essure procedure have included:

 

  • Life threatening ectopic pregnancy
     

  • Pelvic injury

  • Additional surgeries

  • Autoimmune responses

  • Hysterectomy to remove the device

  • Damage to internal organs

  • injuries to uterus or colon

  • Abnormal bleeding

Additionally, over 600 women have reported getting pregnant after the device was inserted, and Essure devices have been linked to several reported deaths. Recent studies from the British Medical Journal have found that Essure devices are no more effective than surgery, but are ten times more likely to require a secondary procedure. The FDA recently chose to review the device’s safety as reports of harmful side effects grew
