The Essure birth control procedure, approved in the United States in 2002, is an allegedly permanent, but less invasive means of surgical sterilization. With the Essure product, marketed by Bayer AG’s affiliate Conceptus, Inc., a woman has a coil inserted into each fallopian tube, blocking the tubes and preventing conception.

After recent complaints to the FDA, federal investigators have determined that Bayer actively concealed information from the FDA during the product’s approval process, and engaged in other negligence, including using substandard materials when manufacturing the product. Mass tort litigation has been filed naming Bayer and Conceptus as defendants.
