Essure has been on the market for more than a decade. According to NBC News online, Essure "is frequently pitched to women as the only non-surgical option for permanent birth control," and "consists of two nickel-titanium coils inserted into the fallopian tubes, where they spur growth of scar tissue and block sperm from fertilizing a woman's eggs." However, the FDA reported that "some women may be at risk for serious complications."

Approximately 750K women have been implanted with Essure since 2002, and a number of women have had to undergo surgery to replace or remove the device. Potential complications and side effects include the following:

  • Damage to the uterus and fallopian tubes (if device shifts)
  • Pelvic pain
  • Irregular bleeding
  • Unplanned pregnancy
  • Mood disorders
  • Weight gain
  • Hair loss
