Essure Procedure: Take Control

For any woman who is certain that children are not part of her plans for the future, the innovative Essure® procedure is an ideal solution that requires no surgical intervention, no down time, and no hormones. In fact, Essure® is one of the simplest methods of permanent birth control available, and Essure birth control has been proven to be nearly 100 percent effective in all clinical trials.

Birth Control That Lasts

Many women considering permanent birth control may be unaware that they no longer have to rely on traditional tubal ligation, which requires anesthesia, lengthy surgery, and post-surgical recovery time. The Essure procedure, however, is a simple, in-office implantation of a soft, flexible, coil-like device made of a nickel-titanium alloy that contains no hormones and is designed to conform to the natural shape of the body so that it stays securely in place after it has been inserted; and the entire procedure can often be performed in less than ten minutes. Using the natural pathways of the vagina and cervix, Essure is placed into each of the fallopian tubes, where it can begin to form a natural, permanent physical barrier to prevent sperm from reaching eggs, making fertilization and pregnancy impossible. At Coyle Institute, we firmly believe in the safety and efficacy of the Essure procedure; and we highly recommend it to patients who may be concerned about more invasive methods of treatment or who wish to avoid the possible effects of hormonal therapies.

While some patients may experience slight discomfort, pelvic pain, or mild vaginal bleeding immediately following the procedure, Essure generally causes few side effects; and most women can return to regular activity within a day or two. Its proper placement must be confirmed by a doctor three months after the insertion; and, until then, patients are instructed to use other methods of birth control in order to avoid pregnancy. At Coyle Institute, we want the women in our care to have peace of mind that their procedure has been successful, so we provide them with all necessary follow-up testing and will walk them through each step until they are completely satisfied in their decision.
