Reports of injuries linked to Bayer’s Essure are already on the rise through the first half of 2017. In May, it was revealed that there are already more than 2,000 reports of severe bleeding, hair loss, pelvic pain, organ perforation and other adverse side-effects associated with the permanent contraceptive device. In 2016 alone, an independent review revealed 3,000 reports of Essure removals.
Essure, marketed as a permanent contraceptive device to be 99% effective, was first approved by the FDA in 2002. However, the device has been linked to thousands of complaints made by women who experienced severe side-effects from Essure, including pregnancy, miscarriage, migration of the device, and other complications.
