FDA Restricts Sale of Essure Birth Control Device Due To Safety

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration recently restricted the sale of Essure, a birth control device for women linked to thousands of injuries since the FDA approved Essure in 2002. Manufactured by pharmaceutical company Bayer AG, Essure is a permanent birth control device inserted in a women’s fallopian tube which forms a permanent barrier blocking sperm from reaching the egg, according to Essure’s website. As of December 2017, the FDA had received 26,773 reports of adverse events involving Essure, including women complaining of chronic pain and discomfort caused by fragments of the device inside their bodies. As a result, the FDA restricted the sale of Essure on April 9, 2018 to ensure that only providers and facilities that had adequately provided patients with information about risks could sell or distribute the device.
