Essure Contraception

Published on: July 17, 2014

Many families reach the point when a man and woman decide they are “done.” Many women make the decision not to have children at all. And for various reasons some couples do not want to have children together. Essure is a surgery-free permanent birth control procedure that works with a woman’s body to prevent pregnancy. Unlike oral contraceptives, Essure contraception does not require the use of hormones to prevent pregnancy. It simply works with the body to create a natural barrier.

When a woman (and a man if a man is involved in the decision) decide that she is ready for permanent birth control, Essure is an option that her OBGYN can help her with. The Essure procedure offers benefits that no other birth control can offer. It does not require surgery as it is performed in the doctor’s office. Most women leave the doctor’s office is 45 minutes and will resume regular activities in less than a day. Essure is labeled as a “more natural birth control” since it uses no hormones and has no hormonal side effects. It is also labeled as “worry free” because a doctor will confirm that a woman’s tubes are blocked and an unwanted pregnancy will not be conceived.

If you have decided that you do not want children or that your family is complete and you do not want to add any more children through pregnancy, talk with your doctor. Essure contraception is a leading choice among women today for an easy and permanent solution.
