December 20, 2018 – Dr. Scott Gottlieb, Commissioner of the FDA, said in a posting that the agency is working with Bayer to “revise and strengthen” its post-market study of Essure, which began in 2016. The trial will now follow women who were implanted with Essure for 5 years instead of the initially requested 3, giving the FDA “longer-term information on adverse risks of the device, including issues that may lead women to have the device removed.”

What’s the Problem?
Bayer faces thousands of lawsuits filed on behalf of Essure recipients who claim the IUD pierced their fallopian tubes, and that part of the birth control device became dislodged and migrated to other parts of their bodies.
Bayer announced in July that it would phase out the IUD in the U.S., a move the company blamed on decreased sales rather than health concerns.
