The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is looking into the dangers with yet another controversial birth control product out on the market. The Essure birth control implant has caused side effects that are non-life threatening, but more disturbing (and death in at least one instance). Some women, with the implanted Essure, have complained of weight gain, fatigue, and depression, while others have complained of severe, burning pain from the pelvis and radiating down the lower extremities. There have also been reports of miscarriages and the metal coils cutting into other organs of the body. One woman died while the Essure was being implanted.
To date, females and loved ones affected by this birth control device have had a long road in getting anyone to listen to the dangers of the Essure device. However, the FDA has finally decided to look into the safety implications with outside experts.
If you or a loved one has been injured by the Essure birth control implant or another medical product on the market, do not hesitate to contact the caring professional at Inserra & Kelley Law Offices. You may be entitled to compensation.
