NEW FDA WARNING ABOUT PERMANENT FEMALE CONTRACEPTION, ESSURE®

Essure® is a permanent, non-surgical, birth control method for women in which a flexible metal coil is inserted through the vagina and cervix and into the fallopian tube. Over time, scar tissue builds up creating a barrier preventing conception.

Since its release in 2000, more than 5,000 women have filed complaints with the FDA concerning side effects such as:

  • Additional surgery, including hysterectomy
  • Autoimmune response such as fatigue, rash, hair loss, weight gain
  • Chronic pain
  • Bleeding
  • Miscarriages
  • Ectopic pregnancies
  • Unintended pregnancy
  • Perforation
  • Expulsion
  • Migration of the device
  • Death

On Monday, February 29, 2016, the FDA announced it will require a new “black box warning” label for Essure®—the highest warning available to call attention to serious or life-threatening risks.
