What is Essure?

Essure is a permanently implanted birth control device for women (female sterilization). Implantation of Essure does not require a surgical incision. In the procedure, a health care provider inserts flexible coils through the vagina and cervix and into the fallopian tubes – the tubes that carry the eggs from the ovaries to the uterus. Over a period of about three months, tissue forms around the inserts. The build-up of tissue creates a barrier that keeps sperm from reaching the eggs, thus preventing conception. Essure is considered a permanent form of birth control and therefore is not intended to be removed.
 

What is Happening with Essure?

According to FDA data, more than 5,000 adverse events of Essure were reported between November, 2002 and May, 2015. Recent studies conducted by the FDA show that Essure users are ill-prepared for the serious side effects linked to Essure and have ordered Bayer, the manufacturers of Essure, to conduct a study and update the Essure labels to clearly define all known side effects.
