Essure is the subject of significant legal debate in the US and more than 1,000 women have contacted the FDA reporting complications associated with the device.
Essure has been available here in Australia since 2010 and Shine has been contacted by a number of Australian women who have reported complications related to the device. These women have reported experiencing extreme abdominal pain, unwanted pregnancies, fatigue and have developed allergies to metals and other substances.
In the states, the list of complications is longer. With women reporting severe complications including perforation of the uterus or fallopian tubes, haemorrhaging and device migration.
Shine Lawyers is now investigating the potential for a group action for Australian women who’ve been affected by the Essure contraception device.
If you suffered any complications after receiving the Essure contraceptive, you may be entitled to compensation. We can help evaluate your claim on a no win no fee basis.

Essure’s micro-inserts are comprised of an expanding coil made of a stainless steel inner coil, a nickel Titanium (nitinol) expanding outer coil and polyethylene (PET) fibres. After placement of the coils in the fallopian tubes, the micro-inserts expand upon release and anchor into the fallopian tubes. The PET fibres cause inflammation in the fallopian tubes, causing scar tissue to form over the coils, thus blocking fertilization.
