Essure

Choosing permanent birth control is a significant decision and you should reflect, inform yourself, and discuss it with those closest to you prior to committing to permanent birth control.  Once you have explored your options then discuss the procedure in detail with your doctor.

Essure is covered by most insurance providers, and 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.

  • No hormones
  • No slowing down to recover
  • Performed in less than 10 minutes
  • Peace of mind - your doctor can confirm when you can rely on Essure for birth control
  • Trusted by hundreds of thousands of women and doctors for over five years

About the Procedure
Unlike other permanent birth control, the Essure procedure does not require cutting into the body or the use of radiofrequency energy to burn the fallopian tubes. Instead, Our physcians  inserts a soft, flexible inserts through the body’s natural pathways (vagina, cervix, and uterus) and into your fallopian tubes. The very tip of the device remains outside the fallopian tube, which provides you and our doctor with immediate visual confirmation of placement.

During the 3 months following the procedure, your body and the inserts work together to form a natural barrier that prevents sperm from reaching the egg. During this period, you must continue using another form of birth control (other than an IUD).

After three months, it’s time to get a confirmation test  to verify you’re protected from the worries of unplanned pregnancy. The test uses a dye and special type of x-ray to ensure both that the inserts are in place and that the fallopian tubes are completely blocked.

Unlike birth control pills, patches, rings, and some forms of IUDs, Essure does not contain hormones to interfere with your natural menstrual cycle. Your periods should more or less continue in their natural state.
