FDA Says More Testing Needs to Be Done for Essure

Despite news that Essure has possibly caused over 300 fetal deaths and the FDA has received over 5,000 adverse reports about Essure, the FDA claims it needs more Essure tests before taking action to remove Essure. The FDA is now requiring a black box warning on Essure, finally informing woman of the dangerous side effects of Essure. Victims of Essure are rightfully upset and some don't believe the tests are required and don't believe the Essure warnings will help. After the Essure FDA ruling the E-Sisters released this statement which read in part

"These studies could take several years, and leaving the device on the market will only put more women's lives at risk. We are disappointed but not surprised the FDA has once again chosen to side with industry rather than protect patients of a failed medical device."

Mike Fitzpatrick, the Congressman who introduced the E-Free Act also could not believe the FDA's inaction saying, "It’s unbelievable that it took the FDA since September to make just two recommendations with no enforcement measures and [to] ask the manufacturer to perform another study while leaving Essure on the market."

And in our favorite quote over the FDA's decision to drag out yet more tests on Essure, one E-Sister stated: "They've underestimated our determination' to pull the device from the market."
