There was a time when the only way to prevent pregnancy permanently was to have a hysterectomy. However, there are many other options available now, even some that do not require surgery. For women who are positive they do not want to have children in the future, a new product and procedure is available for permanent birth control. Essure ® Contraception can offer a solution for those women without surgery or the use of hormones.
What is Essure ® Contraception?
Unlike surgical procedures to prevent pregnancy, Essure ® Contraception does not require any incisions or removal of your reproductive organs. This contraception works by creating a natural barrier in your fallopian tubes by placing these specially designed inserts into your fallopian tubes. The procedure only takes 10-15 minutes, with an OB/GYN placing these inserts into your fallopian tubes through the vagina and cervix. Although there is a period of time before the inserts are effective at preventing pregnancy, once the barrier is produced, it can be a permanent solution.
For women who no longer want to take hormone birth control and are positive they do not want to become pregnant, Essure ® Contraception can be a viable solution. Many health insurances cover this procedure, which is consider contraception or non-surgical sterilization. It may be covered with only a small co-pay or in some cases, completely covered under your insurance.
If you are ready to have a permanent solution for birth control, contact your local OB/GYN that offersEssure ® Contraception. You can learn more about the procedure, side effects and risks through your doctor and determine whether this is the right contraception for you.
