According to the Guttmacher Institute, more than 99% of women ages 15 to 44 who have been sexually active have used at least one contraceptive method. Whether it be birth control pills or a birth control implant, 62% of women of reproductive age are currently using a contraceptive method. There are many birth control options on the market today for a woman to choose from, though 67% of women currently choose to use nonpermanent methods of birth control such as birth control pills or implant birth control. But 25% of women within their reproductive years tend to choose a permanent solution.
Essure Birth Control
Essure is a permanent type of implant birth control that thousands of women trusted to safely prevent pregnancy. This birth control method works by placing two metal coils inside the fallopian tubes. However, though it was approved by the FDA, the Essure birth control implant has injured women, some have even suffered permanent damage from the device. As stated in a previous blog post, Essure has proven to be an ineffective form of contraception, with serious side effects that could lead to a woman having a hysterectomy. Other side effects include painful cramping, bleeding, device migration (causing perforation of the fallopian tubes and uterine wall), blood clots, and infection.
The Purpose of the Essure Lawsuit
The many victims of Essure felt ignored and discriminated against by both their physicians and the FDA. Some claim their doctors blame “hormones” for the excruciating pain caused by Essure coils, and had to continue suffering from the pain until it could be removed. Many women threatened a hunger strike outside of the FDA’s headquarters until their voices were heard to demand an Essure recall. Essure’s manufacturer Bayer failed to warn women of the birth control’s severe side effects and is now being accused of negligence. For some women, an Essure settlement is the only way to afford the medical expenses caused by the device. These women can no longer do activities they enjoy, have put a strain on relationships, and have lost their quality of life after their Essure experience.
