Parilman & Associates – Medical Device Compensation Attorneys
Many women have advocated for the recall of Essure, and yet, the permanent birth control solution continues to be available. Essure is marketed as an easy, non-surgical, permanent birth control solution. Even though the FDA has received over 5,000 reports from women experiencing adverse side effects, no recall has been issued. In response, women are turning to experienced attorneys to bring about legal action against the company marketing Essure.
Essure is a non-hormonal, permanent birth control solution made up of metal coils that are inserted into the fallopian tubes. After the insertion, which may be performed in a doctor’s office, scar tissue is meant to grow around the coils blocking off the fallopian tubes, resulting in sterilization. Essure first entered the market in 2002 and was purchased by Bayer in 2013. Despite numerous reports, the manufacturer of Essure continues to promote its safety and efficacy. The device is not easily removed and requires surgery to do so if side effects worsen.
