Results of NCHR Study of 1104 Women with Essure Problems

86% reported pain (mostly pelvic or abdominal)
34% reported excessive bleeding – some bled every day of the month instead of a regular period
22% fatigue
16% hair loss
12% hysterectomy
12% depression
7% allergy

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.
