WHAT IS ESSURE?
Essure is a non-surgical permanent birth control procedure that women were told was a safe and effective means of preventing pregnancy. If a woman undergoes the Essure birth control procedure, a metal spring-like device with small coils is implanted into the fallopian tubes by a catheter passed from the vagina through the cervix and uterus. The Essure implant contains inner polyethylene terephthalate fibers to prompt benign fibrotic reaction. It is held in place by a flexible stainless steel inner coil and a dynamic outer nickel titanium alloy coil. Once the Essure implants are in place, they are designed to encourage tissue growth in and around the implant to form over a time span of three months. The tissue barrier formed by occlusion or blockage in the fallopian tubes prevents sperm from reaching an egg.
ESSURE SEVERE SIDE EFFECTS
Essure is marketed by Bayer as a safe and effective, non-surgical permanent birth control procedure for long-term protection against pregnancy as an alternative to a woman having her “tubes tied”. However, since FDA approval in 2002, thousands of women have reported suffering severe and debilitating side effects from Essure including…
- Device Migration Injury
- Perforation Of The Uterus Or Fallopian Tubes
- Unintended Pregnancies Including Ectopic Pregnancy
- Allergic Reaction
- Severe Abdominal Pain And Other Problems
As a result of the growing number of reports of adverse events of harm with Essure, on February 29, 2016, the FDA released a press announcement recommending that sterilization devices, such as the Essure procedure, include a Black Box warning label, that contains warnings that the devices can potentially cause death or serious injury as well as explaining the possible side effects, which reads:
Some patients implanted with the Essure System for Permanent Birth Control have experienced and/or reported adverse events, including perforation of the uterus and/or fallopian tubes, identifications of inserts in the abdominal cavity, persistent pain, and suspected allergic or hypersensitivity reactions. If the device needs to be removed to address such an adverse event, a surgical procedure will be required. Women have reported pelvic pain, headaches, back pain, joint pain, allergy, and autoimmune responses, to name just a few issues.
As of July 20, 2018, Bayer, its manufacturer, has announced that it will be removing Essure from the American market, and that after December 31, 2018, it will no longer sell or distribute the product in the country. This announcement came after thousands of complaints from women patients since the product hit the market in 2002, and after years of patient activists and patient safety organizations fighting against the device and Bayer (it also came just days before a documentary exposing Essure’s dangerous effects was scheduled to be released on Netflix called “The Bleeding Edge”).
