FDA Calls For Warnings, Study Of Permanent Birth Control


Colorado women who say they have suffered as a result of a permanent birth control implant now say they are outraged by a decision made by the Food and Drug Administration.

Essure is a tiny coil designed to block the fallopian tubes and permanently stop pregnancy. Thousands of women across the country have complained about health problems after having the implant. In the last year, CBS4 has talked to more than a half-dozen Colorado who say they’ve suffered due to Essure.

In September 2015, the Medical Devices Advisory Committee of the Food and Drug Administration held a day-long hearing on the product. Panel members heard from Bayer Healthcare, the maker of Essure, medical professionals, as well as patients who’ve reported health problems after having the implant. The Colorado contingent felt vindicated.

“We’re finally being heard. It’s been a long battle … years of trying to be heard,” said Debra Logan in September at the time of the hearing.

They were hoping for a full recall of Essure.

On Feb. 29, the FDA issued a communication asking for a new postmarket study of patients with the implant. The agency is calling for new package labeling that will make the warnings more prevalent, and a Patient Decision Checklist. But the FDA stopped short of taking the product off the market.

COMBINING BIRTH CONTROL PILLS TRIGGERS HEART ATTACK FOR 24-YEAR-OLD


pills But the young woman was having a heart attack. At the hospital, tests revealed that she had a hole in her heart and the blood vessels leading to her heart were loaded with clots. Normally, blood clots would cause a stroke, but because of the hole in Brison’s heart, the clots got stuck there instead, resulting in a massive heart attack.

Brison was stunned to learn about the hole, but was even more surprised to learn that she had blood clots. Her consultant at the hospital had a hunch as to their cause: oral contraceptives.

While data is still incomplete for 2015, the documents, provided by the Washington Health Care Authority, reveal children as young as 10 and teens from all age groups received implants throughout 2013 and 2014.
