What Is Essure & How Does It Work?
Essure is a type of permanent sterilization procedure that has been available since 2002. It is a non-surgical birth control option made up of polyester fibers and metallic coils that are placed into the patient’s fallopian tubes. Three months after implantation, the scar tissue in the fallopian tubes becomes inflamed and serves as a barrier to prevent sperm from reaching the eggs.
Essure has been linked to many dangerous side effects. Thousands of women have come forward with stories about injuries and malfunctions related to their Essure device. The FDA has reported at least 9,000 serious side effects related to Essure. If you have an injury that might be connected to Essure, you should immediately speak with our Norfolk personal injury lawyers.
