Join the Essure Lawsuit and Fight Against a Device with Devastating Dangers
If you have had problems with your Essure device, then you can join the Essure lawsuit to get money for your suffering. Did you know that the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Essure in 2002? Essure is a device that consists of two small coils which are implanted through the vagina into the fallopian tubes. Once Essure is implanted, tissue forms creating a barrier around the implant, preventing sperm from reaching eggs.
Essure is devastating woman across the United States as it is estimated that 750,000 women have been implanted with an Essure device. Of those women, thousands have reported Essure problems and complications. Moreover, from 2002 to 2013, the FDA gathered 988 reports complaining of adverse events linked to Essure, with over half of the reports being collected in 2013.
Common adverse reactions to Essure frequently occur within 15 months of device implementation, and include:
- Abdominal pain/cramps
- Vaginal bleeding
- Nickel allergy
- Severe menstrual cramps
- Back pain
- Painful sexual intercourse
- Intra-peritoneal migration
Due to the high likelihood of adverse reactions, you are not alone if you are experiencing pain and suffering, as a result, of Essure.
Though the FDA, has not recalled Essure, it has witnessed a climactic increase in adverse events associated with the Essure device. In February 2016, the manufacturer of Essure was ordered to conduct a clinical study to examine the risks associated with the device. Moreover, the FDA issued a proposed black box warning for Essure labeling in a further effort to more properly inform women of the potentially serious complications associated with Essure.
If you or a loved one has taken Essure and experienced severe side effects, you may be eligible to file an Essure lawsuit.
