Essure tubal occlusion is a permanent birth control method that works with your body to prevent pregnancy. This procedure is incision-free. The devices that are placed to occlude the tube are hormone free and are made from the same material that is used in cardiac stents. The procedure is greater than 99% effective. The procedure does cause mild cramping and this will last for 24 hours at the most. This procedure is not immediately effective and another form of birth control must be used for 12 weeks until the tubes are confirmed to be completely blocked with a confirmation test, which is performed in radiology. This procedure can be performed in office or in the operating room depending on patient preference.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the office.
