While Essure was marketed as an alternative form of permanent and non-reversible birth control that wouldn’t require surgery, many victims suffering from side effects caused by this product require surgery to treat the damage. In some cases, those patients require years – and sometimes a lifetime – of medical care in order to treat the lingering effects.
The FDA has been receiving reports of serious side effects since at least 2013, but some women have come out saying that they first reported the effects more than a decade ago. Despite the growing number of concerns, numerous organizations ignored the evidence and continued to defend the product that is now being pulled from shelves.
Essure Permanent Birth Control System was originally manufactured by Conceptus, an American medical products manufacturer and developer before the company was purchased by Bayer AG, a German multinational pharmaceutical and life sciences company for $1.1 billion in 2013.
New Essure lawsuits are being filed in courts across the United States every month, and these victims are seeking compensation for lost quality of life and to cover the medical bills that piled up in order to treat their symptoms. Non-economic damages (like pain and suffering) may also apply.
