2015 FiDA highlight
86% reported pain (mostly pelvic or abdominal)
34% reported excessive bleeding – some bled every day of the month instead of a regular period
16% hair loss
These are all women reporting serious complications, not a random sample of Essure patients.
About 35% had Essure removed and about half of those had a complete recovery. Only 5% of those who had them removed reported no improvement in symptoms.
