The Essure procedure is the first and only FDA approved permanent birth control procedure to have zero pregnancies in the clincal trails.
What is the Essure procedure?
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, through the body's natural pathways (vagina, cervix and 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 resching the egg. During this time, you will need to use another form of birth control.
After 3 months, your doctor will order an Essure confirmation test, done by a radiologist it is a special type of x-ray to confirm that your tubes are completely blocked and that you can rely on the Essure micro-inserts for Birth Control.
