Thousands of women may have been injured or suffered complications from the Essure® birth control device manufactured and marketed by Bayer Healthcare Pharmaceuticals. The device, which is intended to render the recipient permanently sterile, is currently the subject of citizen petition urging the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) to possibly order a recall. Among other things, the petition charges that Conceptus, Inc., which launched Essure® 14 years ago, perpetrated fraud during its clinical trials.
Over the past 14 years, the FDA has reviewed a significant amount of information related to the use of the Essure® birth control device. While the FDA believes Essure® remains an appropriate option for the majority of woman seeking permanent birth control options, some women may be at risk for serous complications.
