Essure Birth Control Lawsuit
FDA Takes Additional Action on Essure
In early 2016 the FDA announced that it would take actions to provide important information about the risks of using Essure. These actions are intended to help women and their doctors be better informed of potential complications with the device. This included requiring a black-box warning on packaging of Essure and a Patient Decision Checklist to ensure women receive and understand the risks associated with using Essure. The FDA also ordered Bayer to conduct a post-market surveillance study to gather information to help the FDA better understand the risks associated with Essure. The results of these studies will be used by the FDA to determine if any further actions concerning Essure will be necessary to protect the public health.
Potential Essure Risks and Side Effects
Essure is a permanent birth control method for women. One of the early selling points for Essure was that it did not require a surgical incision. Instead, the small metal coils were inserted through the vagina and cervix and into the fallopian tubes. Over a period of time, tissue would develop around the coils which created a barrier to keep sperm from reaching the eggs and preventing conception. However, since its approval, the FDA has received thousands of reports of negative side effects from Essure.
