The Fifth Estate – Unreported: The Essure Story

Synopsis

Essure was billed as a safe, simple and non-surgical form of permanent birth control. It was implanted into thousands of women in Canada and about a million around the world. But some of those women are experiencing medical complications that have led to surgery, including hysterectomies. Should regulatory agencies, like Health Canada, have been more vigilant in ensuring the device was adequately studied before being approved?
