This gentle, non-surgical procedure can be performed in the comfort of a doctor’s office in minutes. Most women are able to resume their normal activities within one day of the procedure.
Essure blocks the egg and sperm from meeting, so conception never occurs. During this time, you must continue using another form of birth control. After three months, your doctor will perform a test to confirm that the fallopian tubes are fully blocked and that you can rely on Essure for permanent birth control. Essure is proven to be 99.74% effective.
The Essure procedure avoids the risks and discomfort of surgical procedures like tubal ligation and vasectomy. While this may be a painless procedure, please keep in mind it is not reversible. This is permanent so be sure that your family is complete.
