Essure® is a form of permanent sterilization. The device works by blocking the fallopian tubes, and is a non-surgical alternative to the procedure, tubal ligation, also referred to as getting one’s “tubes tied.” It is coil-shaped and made of titanium alloy and nickel. Once inserted into the fallopian tubes, tissue grows around the coil to essentially create a “block,” and thus prevents contraception. Women began reporting various side effects after using the device.
