Essure is used as a permanent birth control and works by using a kind of tubal sterilization without incisions called a hysteroscopic sterilization. This procedure is preformed by inserting a delicate springy metal that is covered with manufactured materials into the fallopian tubes. The metal is made of stainless steel coils and nickel titanium coils. The materials around the coils are used to help the tissues in the body stick to the implant which a creates wall of scarred tissues which prevents any sperm from getting to the eggs.Who makes the Essure Birth Control Product?
Conceptus Inc was the original maker of the Essure birth control product and it received approval from the Food and Drug Administration in 2002. Then, in 2013, Bayer bought Conceptus for $1.1 billion and still marketed the Essure product. Bayer states that, “It is the only FDA-approved permanent form of birth control with a procedure that can be performed in an office setting without general anesthesia.” A study conducted by the business found the product to be almost one hundred percent effective in the prevention of pregnancy. Bayer states that Essure is safe, however, many women have experienced dangerous side effects.What are Some of the Most Common Side Effects of Essure to be Aware of?
