Essure is a medical device made of nickel and shaped like a coil that is permanently inserted in the patient’s fallopian tubes to prevent pregnancy. Essure is marketed as the only permanent birth control option available to women in the United States.
Unfortunately, many women are experiencing:
- Abdominal pain
- Chronic pain
- Embedment in the uterine wall
- Hormonal changes
- Internal bleeding
- Irregular periods
- Lower back pain
- Memory Loss
- Pain during intercourse
- Pelvic pain
- Weight gain
- Vaginal bleeding
Because of this, the FDA changed its warning stating the devices should be used in situations where no other option is available and where the patient is completely informed of all potential affects.
