Essure Implant Claims

Essure Implants are designed to sterilise women; the small coil-like implant is placed into the fallopian tubes where scar tissue develops to block any eggs produced from reaching the womb.

We can offer you support and advice if you have concerns following the insertion of an Essure Implant.

It is estimated that around 750,000 women have been fitted with these irreversible implants*. Now, serious questions are being raised about the safety of this method of sterilisation following increasing reports of serious complications.

The coil-like implant has resulted in women complaining of chronic and debilitating pain. Medical professionals are speculating about how the Essure Implant is causing such debilitating pain. In particular, whether the combination of nickel and plastic that forms the coil-like implant might react badly with some women more than others.

There have also been documented cases of the Essure Implant perforating the fallopian tube, the implant itself falling out of position and then lodging itself elsewhere in the body causing untold damage and pain for the victim. There have even been reported cases of the Essure Implant causing ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside of the womb).

Because of the way the coil-like implant is attached to the fallopian tube the only method of removal from the body is by performing a hysterectomy – a highly invasive surgical procedure. This has resulted in a number of women requiring full hysterectomies to have the implant removed.

According to the BBC, the USA has seen over 15,000 women reported issues with their Essure Implant, and it has just been banned outside of the US. The numbers used in the UK are yet to be confirmed. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-41011890
