Hundreds of Fetal Deaths Potentially Linked to Essure, Analyst Finds

Permanent contraceptive device Essure is touted as being 99%-effective at preventing pregnancy, however reports of over 300 fetal deaths have been linked to Essure users who conceived while implanted with the device, according to a private analyst’s review of the FDA’s public database of adverse event reports. The FDA originally cited 5 fetal deaths related to Essure, though in light of the findings, U.S. Rep. Mike Fitzpatrick, a Pennsylvania Republican who introduced the E-Free Act to remove Essure from the market, urged the agency to review the “immense discrepancy.” If you or someone you love is affected by complications from Essure, contact us by calling 888-985-7228 so we can confidentially discuss the legal options available to you.
