Serious Safety Questions Raised About Birth Control Device

Posted on in Uncategorized

By Robert Geimer

Serious questions are being asked about the safety of the Essure birth control device manufactured by Bayer HealthCare Pharmaceuticals.  According to a study in the British Medical Journal, the device, which is implanted in a woman’s fallopian tubes to induce scar tissue formation to block the tubes and prevent eggs from being fertilized, resulted in women undergoing 10 times as many surgeries to fix problems versus women who had their tubes tied.  According to the FDA, patients have reported persistent pain and bleeding and the need to remove the device and repair damage.  Therefore, it would seem that women should think twice and consult with their physicians before using Essure for birth control.
