What Is Essure, and Why Is It Dangerous?
Essure was developed as a birth control device for women who were certain they did not want any more children. Many women choice Essure because the simple process only took 10 minutes without anesthesia and claimed to prevent all future pregnancies.
However, thousands of women experienced serious health complications after their Essure implants. The Essure implants contain nickel-titanium alloys, materials known to cause allergic reactions including rashes, itching, and hives. Other complications include:
- Abdominal pain
- Irregular menstruation
- Weight fluctuations
- Unprevented pregnancy
- Vaginal infections
