Essure Birth Control Device Causes Medical Complications

The variety and effeEssure Birth Control Device Defects Prompt Lawsuits From Medical Complicationsctiveness of birth control devices has risen significantly in recent years, making it easier than ever for couples to choose if or when they want to start a family. Unfortunately, not all of these devices are entire free of defects. The Essure Birth Control Device, in particular, has had some nasty side effects for a number of patients who use it.

Side effects associated with the Essure Birth Control Device include:

  • Chronic pain in the lower abdomen
  • Internal bleeding
  • Punctured organs
  • Depression and Anxiety
  • Lightheadedness and fainting
  • Weight gain
  • Autoimmune disorder symptoms
  • Suicidal thoughts
  • Unexpected pregnancy
  • Death

The culprit in these cases might be defects in the product itself, or it may be in the way the doctors install it. Several lawsuits allege that doctors have not been properly trained or instructed in the installation, while others blame defects in the testing structure that allowed Essure to secure FDA approval. If you have been experiencing adverse symptoms after getting an Essure device placed in your body, you may need to undergo a medical examination to determine the cause.
