Women Take A Stand After Agreeing To Essure Sterilization

Erin Brockovich is taking a stand, along with many women all over the United States, to fight against what they believe to be faulty information they were given about getting the sterilization device, Essure, implanted in their fallopian tubes.

Many of these women have suffered from various side effects because of the device, which is supposed to block the fallopian tubes from being able to allow fertilization to take place. Essure markets the product as a better, non-surgical alternative to tubal ligation, but for the women who have encountered severe pain, headaches, nausea, and even pregnancy, Essure was a poor choice. Many of them feel that they were not given all of the facts.

According to a recent news article on the ABC website, Bayer, the company that owns Essure, has agreed to revise the documentation that women receive prior to having the procedure done. Before now, women were not made aware that Essure contains nickel, which is a metal that many people are allergic to.

As your St. Louis personal injury attorney, we want to hear from you if you are suffering from the severe side effects of Essure. Changes are being made, however, your voice is important. If you have suffered from pelvic pain or any other debilitating side effect, your St. Louis personal injury attorney can get you the justice you deserve.
