In April, when the FDA became aware that many patients were not being adequately counseled, we required a restriction which limits the sale and distribution of the device to only health care providers and facilities that provide information to patients about the risks and benefits of this device and gives patients the opportunity to sign an acknowledgement that they fully understood these potential risks before having the device implanted.

Adverse events such as perforation of the uterus and/or fallopian tubes, migration of inserts to the abdominal or pelvic cavity, persistent pain, and suspected allergic or hypersensitivity reactions has been reported in some women after Essure implantation. They also claim that the device failed to prevent unwanted pregnancies and led to nickel allergies and depression.

Bayer denies that Essure is unsafe or ineffective, and in Friday's statement said that women now using the product can "confidently" rely on it.
