Essure Permanent Birth Control is a form of birth control sold by Bayer. This contraceptive is intended to be nonreversible and is an alternative to other birth control procedures. The Essure procedure consists of flexible coils inserted into the fallopian tubes in order to prevent conception.
Large numbers of injuries have been reported to the FDA from the use of Essure implants. The injuries reported by these women include tubal and uterus puncturing, pain and bleeding, abdominal or pelvic device migration, unintended pregnancies, serious reactions from nickel allergies, and death.
On September 24, 2015 the FDA met to discuss the safety of the Essure birth control device. On February 29, 2016, the FDA required a new clinical study for Essure and recommenced labeling changes in order to address the risks associated with Essure.
