History of Essure®
Essure® was marketed by Bayer HealthCare. It went on the market in the United States in November 2002. The product was approved by the United States Food & Drug Administration. Essure® is an implantable, permanent birth control device made of two small metal coils and polyester fibers. The device is implanted in the fallopian tubes through the vagina. Over time, a period of approximately three months—the fibers cause irritation and scar tissue, performing as a barrier to conception.
