essure1The media has been giving Essure a bad name, but the truth is that over and over again, the data and analysis show that Essure is a safe and effective permanent birth control option. Besides, why would not offer our patients options we didn’t trust?

This is why we continuously monitor the data and test results of the industry.

In October 2013, the FDA re-evaluated the safety profile of Essure. They found no evidence indicating any new or more widespread complications associated with Essure occurring more than five years after placement. The FDA also reviewed patient reports of problems including web-based testimonials and reports submitted directly to the FDA and found no causal relationship between Essure and the reported problems.
