The Essure procedure was designed with you in mind so you won’t need to take time away from your busy life. During this quick procedure, Dr. Erhard places the soft, flexible Essure inserts into your fallopian tubes through the natural pathways of your vagina and cervix, so no incision is necessary. The inserts are made of the same material that is used and proven safe in heart stents and other medical devices.
Over the next three months, your body works with the inserts to form a natural barrier in your fallopian tubes. This barrier prevents sperm from reaching the egg so that pregnancy cannot occur. During this three-month period, you must continue to use another form of birth control.
To provide you with the confidence that you are protected from unplanned pregnancy, you’ll have an Essure Confirmation Test. This test verifies that the inserts are in place and your fallopian tubes are fully blocked.
Essure is covered by major health insurance providers, check with your insurance company for deductibles and benefit questions.
Once you have Essure, you’ll never have to worry about unplanned pregnancy or remembering to take your birth control again
