What is Essure?
Essure is a form of permanent birth control. This is also known as a female sterilization procedure. Unlike the most common form of permanent female sterilization, tubal ligation, Essure features no incisions or surgical alteration of the fallopian tubes.
Instead, Essure makes use of a special inserted device to block the fallopian tube and prevent pregnancy.
- Over 99% effective, per the creators of Essure
Essure has been in regular use for more than a decade. Because Essure does not contain or release hormones, it avoids many of the side effects of oral and injected birth control. That means no weight gain, no mood swings and a far smaller margin of error.
How Does Essure Work?
The Essure procedure is non-surgical and non-invasive. Because of this, Essure features virtually no downtime; it takes just 45 minutes to complete for most women. During the actual Essure procedure:
- The special Essure insert is placed in the fallopian tube. This insert is made in a coil shape that will bend and expand as necessary to fit the specific shape of the fallopian tube.
- Over the course of three months, the fallopian tubes will naturally form a barrier around the Essure device. This barrier will stop sperm from reaching the egg. During this three-month period, other birth control must be used.
- After the three-month period, a special X-ray test is used to determine if the Essure device has fully blocked the fallopian tubes. After this is confirmed, the Essure procedure is complete.
It's important to understand that the Essure birth control implant is a permanent procedure. This means that once it has been performed, it cannot be reversed. Because of this, it is only recommended for women who are certain they do not wish to have children.
