Kentucky Essure Lawyers
The Essure Permanent Birth Control System initially hit the market in the United States in 2002. It was meant to be a non-invasive form of permanent birth control in which a tiny device is implanted into each fallopian tube. Essure was FDA approved and widely available, but due to thousands of complaints of complications, the FDA is reconsidering their approval.
Essure patients have experienced a variety of complications, including:
- Allergic reactions to nickel;
- Severe abdominal pain;
- Severe pelvic pain;
- Irregular periods;
- Autoimmune disorders;
- Painful intercourse;
- Device displacement and breakage; and
- Weight fluctuations and bloating;
In order to have Essure removed and end the complications, many patients have had to undergo hysterectomies.
Your Legal Remedies
Essure, manufactured by Bayer Healthcare, was marketed and sold as a safe, permanent, non-invasive form of birth control. Studies, reports, and complaints by patients show that these warranties may be untrue. Furthermore, Bayer has recently acknowledged that Essure may cause serious complications. If you relied on Bayer’s warranties and have experienced complications like those listed above, you may have one or more legal actions against Bayer, including:
- Designing a faulty product;
- Breach of implied and express warranty;
- Fraud and/or Misrepresentation;
