Essure is a permanent, non-surgical birth control device for women first approved for use in the United States in 2002. It is considered less invasive than surgical alternatives because it doesn’t require an incision. However, Bayer, the manufacturer of Essure, has been subject to over 14,000 reports of adverse side effects including organ perforation, autoimmune disorders, subsequent hysterectomies, and device migration.
