Essure is a form of female sterilization (or permanent birth control) that has caused complications and injuries for thousands of women. The FDA has placed a black box warning, its strongest possible warning, on Essure to make patients aware of adverse effects.
How does Essure work?
The metal, spring-like device is implanted in a woman’s fallopian tubes during a roughly ten minute procedure. Wound in synthetic fibers intended to adhere it to surrounding tissues, the device promotes the development of scar tissue that would act as a barrier to sperm reaching an egg.
What are the risks of Essure?
Severe complications have resulted after the Essure device implantation procedure. These include:
• Tearing or perforation of the uterus, fallopian tubes, or other pelvic organs
• Chronic pain
• Menstrual irregularities
• Autoimmune and allergen responses such as rashes, hair loss, weight gain, fatigue, and severe migraines
• Fetal Death, ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage
• Migration of the device or its components to other parts of the body
• Expulsion of the device
• The need for a hysterectomy to remove the device and repair internal organ
