Essure Birth Control Injury Lawsuits

Have you had an Essure permanent birth control device?
Has your Essure birth control device migrated?
Has the device perforated your uterus or fallopian tubes?
Experienced other complications related to your device?

 

The Law Offices of Richard J. Serpe, PC are currently investigating potential injury claims for anyone who has suffered from complications or has been seriously injured by an Essure permanent birth control device.


The FDA has received numerous reports of injuries and complications.

The Food and Drug Administration is taking a hard look at the effectiveness and safety of Bayer's Essure, a medical device designed to permanently prevent pregnancy. The sterilization coils have come under fire following more than 5,000 adverse events reported to the FDA in the years following its approval for the market. Complaints range from abdominal pain to unintended pregnancy to organ perforation. Most complaints stem from one common problem: migration of the device.

The Essure coils are implanted in a woman's fallopian tubes, but many reports indicate they have broken apart inside the body. Even worse, the coils have reportedly migrated, requiring hospitalization, surgery and even hysterectomies. Undoubtedly, had women been informed of these potential risks, they may have opted for safer alternatives.

Complications Reported by Women:

  • Essure device has migrated
  • Essure device perforated the uterus
  • Essure device perforated the fallopian tubes
  • Unintended Pregnancy
  • Pelvic Pain
  • Rash & Itching
