What is Essure?

Essure is a permanent female sterilization device that has been implanted in over 700,000 women. It consists of micro-inserts made of PET fibers, which are designed to trigger inflammation and induce the growth of scar tissue which permanently occlude the fallopian tubes.

Is Essure safe?

Essure is marketed as the safest form of permanent birth control—but it is no such thing. In fact, it carries a risk of debilitating pain, allergic reactions, autoimmune disorders, dyspareunia, and uterine perforation, none of which are present with tubal ligation, the most prevalent permanent female sterilization alternative.
Essure carries a significant risk of unintended pregnancy, as the device may migrate or be expelled by the body. The manufacturer actively concealed these risk of unintended pregnancies while continuing to market it as a more effective alternative to tubal ligation. After FDA approval, additional widespread reports of immune-related disorders resulting from the chronic inflammation produced by Essure.
