What are the Side Effects, Problems and Risks of the Essure Medical Device

According to the Food and Drug Administration, the short-term risks from Essure include mild to moderate pain, cramping, vaginal bleeding, and pelvic or back discomfort.


The long-term risks include:


  • Unintended pregnancy, including ectopic pregnancy
  • Pelvic pain
  • Migration (movement) of Essure inserts through the fallopian tubes into the lower abdomen and pelvis
  • Perforation (puncturing) of the uterus or fallopian tubes
  • Rash and itching associated with possible nickel allergy


The FDA received 5,093 reports of problems related to Essure for the period November 4, 2002, through May 31, 2015. The majority of reports received since 2013 have been voluntary reports, mostly from women who received Essure implants. The most frequent problems have been pain (3,353), heavier menses/menstrual irregularities (1,408), headache (1,383), fatigue (966), weight fluctuations (936), movement of the device (482), device operating differently than expected (301), and device breakage (259).


If the Essure implant separates, breaks and/or moves, attempted removal often requires multiple surgeries, sometimes requiring removal of the uterus entirely.

BREAKING NEWS as of February 29, 2016: FDA Issues Black Box Warning for Essure® Device. Now is the time to join the Class Action Lawsuit.

Call Us Today (205) 206-6300.


When you chose to have a permanent birth control procedure, you likely do so in full faith that it will result in a safe and effective means of preventing pregnancy. What you might not have known is that procedures involving permanent fallopian tube implants such as Essure® have reportedly caused a host of serious side effects and complications in thousands of women ranging from chronic pelvic pain to even death.


The Essure lawsuit states the manufacturer and seller of Essure hid evidence from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of various risks associated with the birth control device in order to get government Premarket Approval, and has since failed to properly warn patients and physicians of the tr  risks. The lawsuits provide that if the manufacturer and seller had warned of the risks, patients would have chosen a different form of birth control, such as a hysterectomy, salpingectomy, tubal ligation, tubal fulguration, or application of clips.


There are more than 4,500 adverse event reports filed with the FDA about Essure that describe problems that doctors or patients have reported about the device. Those include deaths of women implanted with the device and premature births in which women became pregnant while implanted with Essure.
