Essure Birth Control Attorneys


Following at least 39,000 lawsuits, parent company Bayer Healthcare pulled Essure permanent birth control from the U.S. Market in 2019. Since first gaining regulatory approval in 2002, doctors and Essure patients have filed thousands of complaints with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) alleging serious side effects, injury, and even death. The lawsuits claim that Conceptus, Inc. – the Bayer Healthcare-owned manufacturer and seller of Essure – hid evidence of various risks associated with the birth control device in order to receive government Premarket Approval from the FDA and that Conceptus failed to properly warn physicians and their patients of the true risks.

What is Essure Permanent Birth Control?

Essure is permanent birth control that was developed as a non-surgery alternative to tubal ligation and, as such, did not require an incision to insert. Two permanent flexible coils are inserted through the vagina and cervix and placed in each fallopian tube by a physician. The coils prevent eggs from being fertilized and reaching the uterus. Since first gaining regulatory approval by the FDA, over 750,000 people have used the Essure system.

For Essure Users Who Have Suffered Injury or Death

When anyone chooses to undergo a permanent birth control procedure, they likely do so assuming that it will result in a safe and effective means of preventing pregnancy — especially if they are not told otherwise. However, lawsuits have alleged that implants such as Essure have reportedly caused a host of serious side effects and complications in thousands of users ranging from chronic pelvic pain to death. Many of the alleged reported effects are listed below:

  • Adhesions
  • Scarring
  • Chronic pelvic pain
  • Serious infection requiring hospitalization
  • Intestinal perforations and obstruction
  • Uterine punctures and tears
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Excessive and abnormal bleeding
  • Migration or “disappearance” of device
  • Pain during sex
  • Migraines
  • Hair loss
  • Death
  • Stillborn children
  • Coil eruption
  • Abscesses
  • Need for hysterectomy

More than 26,700 complaints were filed with the FDA in relation to Essure between 2002 and 2017. As a result, Bayer Healthcare was ordered by the FDA to conduct a new clinical trial in February 2016, and it received a “black box” warning label in November of 2016. It has been reported that Bayer Healthcare paid out $413 million due to Essure-related legal woes in 2017 alone. If you or a loved one used Essure permanent birth control, you may be able to file a lawsuit and seek compensation if:

  • Devices from the Essure birth control system were implanted
  • The Essure system resulted in severe complications, including but not limited to pain, perforated organs, death, or another extreme side effect
