Women stunned at FDA's failure to remove Essure from market


Washington D.C., Mar 3, 2016 / 03:02 am (CNA/EWTN News).- The FDA announced Monday that it will add its strictest warning to the label of Essure, a sterilization device in the form of flexible metal coils inserted into the fallopian tubes.

But the decision still comes as a blow to thousands of “E-sisters” – women who have experienced the often debilitating side effects of the device and who have been pushing to get Essure completely removed from the market.

“We are outraged that it appears as if the FDA is going to leave Essure on the market while it implements a draft guidance and labeling recommendations within a black boxed warning as well as ordering new clinical studies,” the group said in a statement on their website.
