One of the things that social media has done is to connect people with rare illnesses together. On sites like Facebook, they can swap information about their experiences. The efforts of women who have used the Essure device and developed complications is one of the reasons why their lawsuits are putting so much pressure on Bayer and the FDA.
The goal of these women is to get the device removed from the market. A news story on ABC 10 details what some of these women have gone through due to complications from the permanent birth control device. One silver lining in the whole situation is that some of the women have become friends in real life due to their experiences.
It is tempting to use Essure because it provides permanent birth control with a minimum of surgical fuss. There are no pills or shots to worry about. However, the convenience has come at a cost. Nickel poisoning and movement of the device over time causes symptoms like pain, unintended pregnancies, auto-immune diseases, and much more.
