Nine Scottish women are suing the makers of birth control device Essure after becoming pregnant post-implantation. The device was billed as a simple and safe procedure and an alternative to sterilization, yet many of the women claimed to have experienced excruciating pain, bloating, bleeding and infections. Moreover, the women who became pregnant while implanted with Essure were at risk of ectopic pregnancies and miscarriages.
The European Union suspended Essure’s license for 90 days in August 2017 because Bayer failed to provide information during a routine product review. In September, Bayer stopped selling Essure in the UK and Europe reportedly for “commercial reasons.”
