The health complications are due to the fact that the inserts contain nickel-titanium alloys, a material known to cause allergic reactions. Once the inserts are placed in the body, they release nickel into the tubes and patients who are allergic to nickel may have serious allergic reactions.

Symptoms of a reaction include rash, itching, and hives. If you are currently using Essure and are experiencing these symptoms, you may be in danger of facing detrimental side effects.

In addition to allergic reactions, Essure can cause other complications, including:

  • Pain/Abdominal Pain
  • Heavier/ Irregular Menstruation
  • Fatigue
  • Weight Fluctuations
  • Device Breakage
  • Dyspareunia
  • Malposition of the Device

Nickel is a very common allergen and can cause contact dermatitis. Contact dermatitis causes an itchy, red rash. It can also cause dry patches of skin resembling a burn, blisters, and severe itchiness. Although the amounts of nickel released in the fallopian tubes by Essure are minute, the damage caused is severe and painful.

For a long time, Essure was believed to be non-reversible. Now, although the process is fairly new, patients can reverse the procedure. Removing Essure coils is a surgical procedure which takes about 30-45 minutes and is conducted under general anesthesia. Openings are made into each fallopian tube and the coils are carefully removed so they remain intact. The openings in the fallopian tubes are then sealed. The entire procedure can cost thousands of dollars.

If you underwent the Essure procedure, and you are reversing it in order to have a child, it’s important to know that your chances of pregnancy are not ideal. After Essure removal, your chances are around 35-40 percent.
