Permanent Contraception - ESSURE

Essure is a permanent birth control procedure that works with your body to create a natural barrier against pregnancy. The Essure procedure involves permanently placing a soft, flexible insert into each fallopian tube. Over a period of about 3 months, a natural barrier forms around the inserts. This barrier keeps sperm from reaching the eggs and prevents conception. After 3 months, a doctor administers the Essure Confirmation Test which confirms the inserts are correctly placed, your fallopian tubes are blocked and you can rely on Essure for permanent birth control. Until you receive this confirmation from your doctor, you must use an alternate form of birth control to prevent pregnancy.


Essure is a short 10-minute procedure that can be performed right in your doctor’s office.

No Downtime to Recover

Most women go home 45 minutes after the procedure and return to normal activities within a day or two.


Essure inserts do not contain or release any hormones.
