Essure Birth Control
WHAT IS ESSURE?
Essure is a permanent birth control device for women, manufactured by Bayer, a subsidiary of Johnson & Johnson. This is considered a Class III device and was approved by the FDA in November 2002 using the Pre-Market Approval (PMA) process. Essure is inserted through the vagina and cervix into the fallopian tubes. This procedure does not require a surgical incision.
Essure has been reported to cause a number of serious adverse effects to consumers in recent years. Injuries amongst the 3,700+ pending actions against Bayer include abdominal pain, autoimmune disorders, weight fluctuations, heavy periods, fatigue, allergies to nickel, bloating, device migration, device breakage, severe pelvic pain and death.
ESSURE LEGAL PROCEEDINGS
According to Bayer's 2017 annual report, Bayer is facing approximately 3,700 Essure lawsuits and subsequently lost about $413 million in revenue during 2016. Cases are being filed on an individual basis in various state courts across the country, ignoring Bayer's Pre-Market Approval defense.
