Complications with Essure® Linked to Halt of Sales?

In 2002, Bayer received approval by the FDA to sell and promote a non-surgical option of permanent birth control for women. Due to reported complaints, the FDA listed the potential warnings and ordered Bayer to conduct a study on the patients using this implant. Mood disorder, headaches, hair loss, weight gain, pain, bleeding, allergic reactions, and other complications have attributed to the many negative complaints to Bayer’s reputation. Due to the increase of reports and problems arising with the implant, many women underwent hysterectomies to remove the implant and continue to suffer problems. Bayer has decided to stop selling the device by the end of the year and is beginning to face thousands of law suits caused by the Essure device.

Other complications include:

  • Abdominal pain
  • Fallopian tube damage
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Removal of device due to symptoms

According to USA Today

  • In May, the FDA said doctors must show women a checklist of the device's risks before implanting it.
  • More than 16,000 U.S. women are suing Bayer over Essure.

If you or a loved one has/had a Essure device implanted and underwent any of these complications, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact our Mass Tort attorneys at (888) 351-1038 or contact us online
