Are you suffering pain months after your Essure procedure? Thousands of women in the US chose Essure as their permanent birth control solution but some of them are now regretting the decision.
Essure is made of two metal coils that are inserted into the fallopian tubes to help prevent future pregnancies. Doctors claim the procedure causes minimal discomfort. In fact, it only takes about ten minutes to put the coils in place.
Essure does warn that some women experience ‘mild to moderate pain’ after having the metal coils inserted. Along with other symptoms like cramping, bleeding, vomiting or fainting. However, there have been cases where women suffered severe pain for months or even years after having the procedure.
Some women have experienced terrible back pain and period cramps that has resulted in them going to hospital.
While it is claimed Essure is a safe device, some women have suffered pain because:
- They’re allergic to the nickel inside Essure
- The coils shattered
- The coils migrated
- The coils perforated organs
Stories from women who’ve suffered pain after having Essure
Merari from Milwaukee, Wisconsin had the Essure procedure in her 20s. Twelve months after the metal coils were put in place, she began to experience fatigue and serious back pain. She had the Essure device for seven years before she decided to have them removed. Her doctors believed the pain was caused by being overweight but even after weight removal surgery, the pain did not desist.
Elizabeth Fleugge was recommended Essure from her doctor when she decided she wanted a permanent form of birth control. However, after suffering ten months of ‘hell’, she realised she needed them to be removed. Her only option to remove the coils was having a hysterectomy.
Some women who have experienced serious side effects and pain months after having the Essure procedure, have decided to file a lawsuit against Essure to get compensation and alert others about the physical dangers of having the device.
Are you suffering pain months after your Essure procedure?
If you’ve suffered severe pain from having Essure then you could start an Essure lawsuit. Many women were not warned of the potential dangers of having the procedure. There have been cases where Essure has perforated organs and the only solution to remove the coils has been by having a hysterectomy. Bayer, the manufacturers of Essure, claimed this was a safe permanent birth control device, but the hundreds of lawsuits suggests otherwise.
If you (or a loved one) has suffered perforation of the organs or had to have a hysterectomy because of Essure, then you could be eligible to file an Essure lawsuit.
