Essure is a non-surgical form of permanent birth control that is 99.8% effective, which ranks as the highest of any permanent birth control. The Essure process was approved by the FDA in 2002 and works with the body to prevent pregnancy.
The procedure is quick, safe and convenient, lasting generally only about ten minutes. It can be done in-office rather than at a hospital or surgery center. No anesthesia is required.A doctor places soft, flexible inserts into each fallopian tube via the natural openings of the vagina and cervix. There is no incision necessary. These inserts form a barrier that prevents sperm from reaching the egg.
Aside from the convenience, patients prefer Essure because it offers a more natural birth control method than hormones and is trusted by over half a million women.
