In 2002, the FDA approved the permanent birth control device Essure, made originally by Conceptus, now made by Bayer. The permanent birth control system utilizes two metal coils inserted into each fallopian tube. Nearly half-a-million women in the U.S. have had this device inserted. Once implanted, tissue grows in and around the device which forms a blockage in the fallopian tubes. The FDA opened a safety review after at least 10,000 women reported adverse effects in 2016.
Complaints of complications from over 10,000 women who use(d) the permanent birth-control brand Essure, made by Bayer, included abdominal pain, infection, perforated organs, autoimmune diseases, menstrual problems, migration (movement) of the device, perforation (puncturing) of the uterus or fallopian tubes, including other serious issues requiring additional surgery.
A huge effort to seek justice has been launched by women on-line, affected by Essure.
