New Orleans Attorney for Essure Side Effects

Essure® Birth Control Contraceptive Linked To Serious Side Effects, Complications, Revisionary Surgery, Pregnancies and Deaths

The Essure® birth control device is a non surgical permanent contraceptive that is popular with women who want to avoid possible complications inherent with invasive surgery. The Essure® device consists of two flexible metal coils which are placed in the fallopian tubes. The coils contain polyester fibers that actually cause inflammation in the fallopian tubes. This inflammation is supposed to stop sperm flow into the tubes, and prevent contraception.


Ironically, many women have had to undergo revisionary surgery or a total hysterectomy as a result of serious side effects and complications linked to the Essure® device.

Complications Linked To The Essure® Contraceptive Device

  • Allergic Reactions (to the nickel used in the coil)
  • Migration of the coil through the fallopian tubes
  • Fallopian tube perforation
  • Uterus perforation
  • Hysterectomy
  • Vaginal Bleeding
  • Cramping
  • Nausea
  • Fainting
  • Vomiting
  • Unusual or Ectopic pregnancies
  • Back pain
  • Pelvic pain

Complications from the Essure birth control device can lead to very serious injury and possibly death. The Food & Drug Administration (FDA) has been asked to ban the Essure™ birth control device by several members of Congress, stating the benefits of the device do not outweigh the inherent risks involved.
