In Office Permanent Birth Control
We all reach a point when our families are complete. Our in office permanent birth control procedure works with your body to create a natural barrier to prevent pregnancy. During the procedure, inserts are placed in the fallopian tubes through the natural pathways of the vagina and cervix, with no incisions and no surgery.
The Essure insert is a very small, soft, flexible insert made of medical grade titanium/nickel. Once the insert is placed, the fallopian tube grows inward around the Essure. All of this growth is internal to the tube causing no reaction outside of the tube. Because there is no burning or cutting, scar tissue is NOT created outside of the fallopian tubes and does not effect how a woman’s ovaries normally work to make hormones. Once the fallopian tubes have grown around the insert internally, this provides the most effective permanent prevention of pregnancy available with zero pregnancies in the clinical trials. In fact, Essure’s success rate is higher than tubal ligation in the operating room or a vasectomy. The procedure takes less than 10 minutes to perform in the office and patients can normally return to their normal activities that same day or the next day.
