Learn more about Essure and if it’s right for you.
A Non-Surgical Option
During the non-surgical procedure, the doctor inserts two micro-inserts into the fallopian tubes. This creates a permanent barrier that prevents pregnancy.
Women can resume normal activities the same day. Essure, for many, is covered under the Affordable Care Act and was approved by the FDA in 2004. For some the cost is as low as an office co-pay.
A confirmation test is performed 12 weeks after the placement to confirm the tubes are blocked.
What is Essure Made From?
Essure is made from the same materials used in heart stents and other medical devices. The micro-inserts do not need incisions to be placed because they naturally fit in a woman’s body.
What Are the Side Effects from Essure?
Side effects include pain and/or cramping after the procedure has been done. Side effects have been reported in 10% of cases. If you experience these symptoms for more than 48 hours, please visit your doctor as soon as possible.
Essure does not protect against HIV or sexually transmitted diseases.
