Essure® sterilization is a non-surgical procedure used to prevent pregnancy. This procedure acts a permanent form of birth control and is an FDA-approved procedure which has proven to be 99% effective. Since the procedure is not a surgical operation there is a low recovery time and can be completed in a doctor’s office in approximately 10 minutes.
The Essure® insert is placed into each fallopian tube by a doctor and remains there permanently. These small inserts work with a woman’s body to create a natural barrier which keeps sperm from reaching the woman’s eggs. While the natural barrier is forming, another type of birth control must be used. Once the barrier is formed, which is confirmed by your doctor, you can rely on the inserts as your only form of birth control. The inserts themselves are designed to bend and move with the shape of your body. Additionally, because the inserts are placed into the fallopian tubes via the natural pathways of the cervix and vagina, no incisions are required.
As with any type of birth control, the Essure® inserts are not 100% effective and it is important to remember that while the barrier is building to use a back-up form of birth control. This form of birth control also does not protect against HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases. This form of birth control is permanent and is only right for those women who no longer wish to have children or know for sure that they don’t want children at all. You will also want to determine if you have a nickel allergy, if you are currently pregnant, if there are any infections present, or if you have an allergy to contrast dye. As with all forms of birth control, talk to your doctor before proceeding.
