Essure ®

Essure® Tubal Ligation is a non-surgical procedure that seals off a woman’s fallopian tubes that carry an egg from the ovaries to the uterus.  By blocking these tubes, where fertilization usually occurs, sperm is unable to reach the egg to fertilize it.

During the procedure, an Essure-certified doctor slides the small, soft inserts through the natural pathways of your vagina and cervix into your fallopian tubes, so no surgery or incision is required. This causes scar tissue to form and permanently blocks off the tubes. During the next three-months as the scar tissue is forming, you must continue to use another form of birth control. After three months, it’s time for your Essure Confirmation Test. During this simple test, a special dye is introduced into your uterus and viewed on an x-ray, so your doctor can confirm that your fallopian tubes are completely blocked and the inserts are in place. Once you receive this verification, you can rely on Essure for permanent birth control. The procedure takes about 30 minutes and does not require anesthesia. Patients should be aware that the procedure provides permanent birth control and is NOT reversible.
