Essure Causes Debilitating Skin Conditions

— October 23, 2015

Essure causes debilitating skin conditions. Tamara Pimentel shares her story of the painful, bleeding rashes she suffered for 3.5 years before realizing that the nickel in her Essure implants was the cause. Upon removal of the Essure coils, Tamara’s rash soon cleared.

Tamara Pimentel shares her story of how Bayer’s Essure nearly destroyed her life. A short time after Tamara had Essure implanted, she developed a rash on her hands. The rash soon spread to other parts of her body, including the area of her torso in the vicinity of her fallopian tubes. Nothing helped. One day, she had the epiphany that Essure causes debilitating skin conditions.

Tamara spent 3.5 years living in a hellish nightmare of itchy, painful rashes that bled spontaneously. People would stop her in the grocery store because she was leaving a trail of blood from the rash on her legs. She would look down at her desk at work only to find it covered in blood from the rash on her hands.

During this time, she also experienced severe “stabbing” abdominal pains.

After Tamara had her Essure coils removed, the rashes cleared up within a few weeks.

How much more will it take, Bayer? How many more women’s lives must be damaged, FDA? This vile product must come off the market now!

If you or someone you know has problems with Essure, there is also a Facebook group, Essure Problems, which offers moral support and good information for Essure victims.

Activist Erin Brockovich has created a website, Essure Procedure, in an effort to create change regarding this horrible device.
