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
