  • Some women are needing to hysterectomies to remove a sterilisation implant that is used by the NHS. The Essure device, which is inserted into the fallopian tubes, allows women to be sterilised without needing surgery. But the Victoria Derbyshire Programme has learnt that it can lead to complications and side-effects, leaving some women with no choice but to have surgery to remove it. The manufacturer and regulator say the device is safe and its benefits outweigh the risks.
