November 4, 2002, was the date when Essure – an alternative permanent birth control technique for women was granted by the US Food and Drugs Administration (FDA). This alternative method by Conceptus Inc., a contributory of Bayer AG, does not need to undertake the surgical laparoscopic tubal ligation. But unfortunately, this method made hundreds of women suffer from all sorts of unfavorable response and side effects. As a result, there is enormous Essure Lawsuit have been filed against this hazardous and unsafe medical contrivance. It is even appealed to the FDA to order a recall of the method due to its alleged safety measures.
Complications and Dangers of Essure Method
Though primarily people were benefited with Essure as it offered permanent female sterilization even without any surgery or general anesthesia, but soon it revealed its other side. Hundreds of women who adopted the medical device for birth control experienced severe side effects and physical problems and complications sooner or later, counting intense back and pelvic sting and spasms that thwarted them from continuing their daily activities, as well as caused continuous fatigue, weakness, headaches, heavy bleeding, weight gain and many more. Another even more serious condition is the life-risking complications that include the device relocation and/or breakage of the device that could guide to severe organ damage, dejection, depression, allergic reports and even suicidal feelings.
How it Works
This permanent birth control device Essure that consists of two metal flexible coils designed for women to be placed in the fallopian tubes through the vagina does not necessitate a surgical score. Slowly scar tissues are formed around the two coils over a period of three months. These cause jamming in the tubes and stop the sperm cells from reaching the eggs and thus cause permanent contraception without affecting the regular menstrual cycle.
Essure Risks and Lawsuits against it
Though the device looked very useful but in the last few years, there are numerous cases of Essure malfunction and many victims claimed that the device has caused them a number of delicate injuries and fitness crisis. Many women purportedly charged the manufacturer for their improper warnings and cautions about the possible lasting risks of Essure and even the FDA for ignoring these repetitive complaints. Many women calling themselves “E-sisters have filed Essure Lawsuit against the Bayer AG.” to share their depressing incidents and alert other women from being injured by Essure device.
Essure Adverse Reactions Confirmed
In the meantime, in the British Medical Journal, a study has been published measuring up to the risks of laparoscopic contraception with those related to Essure implant. This is the study which first ever has evaluated the device’s continuing safety report, and notably, its findings are less than consoling. Researchers found that women who were implanted Essure were at a much larger risk of ending up finally at the operation theatre. It is also important to inform here that the study recommends the surgery required in case of failed Essure insertion, is generally much more problematic than the conventional laparoscopic intervention.
