Essure Permanent Birth Control

Essure is a permanent birth control procedure that works with your body to create a natural barrier against pregnancy. This gentle procedure can be performed in a doctor's office in less than an hour. Trusted by women and doctors for over five years, Essure is covered by most insurance providers. If the Essure procedure is performed in a doctor's office, depending on your specific insurance plan, payment may be as low as a simple co-pay.

Essure offers women what no birth control ever has
  • No cutting
  • No going under general anesthesia
  • No slowing down to recover
  • No hormones
  • No guessing - your doctor can confirm when you can rely on Essure for birth control
  • Short procedure time - Essure only takes about 13 minutes to perform*
  • Trusted by women and doctors for over five years
  • And you'll never have to worry about unplanned pregnancy again.
The Essure procedure is permanent and is NOT reversible. Therefore, you should be sure you do not want children in the future.


How does Essure work?

Essure is different than the traditional method of a surgical tubal ligation. With Essure, there is no cutting or burning of the body. Instead, an Essure trained doctor inserts spring like coils, called micro-inserts, through the body’s natural pathways (vagina, cervix, uterus) and into your fallopian tubes.
During the first 3 months following the procedure, your body and the micro-inserts work together to form a tissue barrier that prevents sperm from reaching the egg. During this time, you will need to use another form of birth control.

After 3 months, your doctor will perform an Essure Confirmation Test, a special type of x-ray to confirm that your tubes are completely blocked and that you can rely on the Essuremicro-inserts for birth control. RSS
