The Essure Procedure
Alternative to Birth Control Pills
Taking birth control can feel like a chore and an interruption to your busy schedule. Running such active and hectic lives, it is not a surprise that many women forget to take their birth control. Studies have shown that an average of 80% of women forget to take a pill or take it late during the first few months of beginning a new pack. Those women who find themselves missing out on the daily, scheduled intake of birth control pills run a risk for unplanned pregnancy.
At OBGYN Pavilion we provide women with the option of the Essure procedure. This procedure is the only option of its kind that is both non-surgical and permanent. This is perfect for those who forget to take daily, monthly, or yearly birth control. Essure can be done in a single doctor’s visit. It does not release any hormones, and is FDA approved. Women have used this procedure for 10 years and have reported returning to their daily activities a day or two after the procedure.
More and more women who wish to avoid pregnancy are opting for this option every day. It is among the most effective options available at our center for patients who are searching for long-term birth control options. By setting up an appointment with one of our dedicated professionals, we will take the time to review all of your options and help decide which birth control method best suits your needs.
How Does the Essure Procedure Work?
Essure birth control is placed into each of your Fallopian tubes by a doctor and it helps your body block the sperm from your eggs naturally to prevent pregnancy. It is soft and flexible, made to bend with your body. It is important to note that this specific birth control is made of nickel-titanium. You must use another form of protection until the barrier has formed.
What to Expect With Essure Birth Control:
- 99% Effective
- Zero Hormone Release
- FDA Approved
Although Essure is incredibly effective, it is important to keep in mind that this procedure is irreversible. If you are a patient that is interested in reliable birth control options, but may wish to become pregnant in the future, this method may not be right for you. However, at OBGYN Pavilion, we offer a wide range of birth control methods that are made to meet the needs of a variety of women. Schedule an appointment today to explore your options.
