Essure is a permanently implanted birth control device for women consisting of flexible coils which are inserted into the fallopian tubes.

The FDA has reported a growing number of adverse events associated with the use of Essure including persistent pain, perforation of the uterus and/or fallopian tubes, intra-abdominal or pelvic device migration, abnormal or irregular bleeding, and allergy or hypersensitivity reactions, with some women having surgical procedures to remove the device.
