Essure® - Contraception
A doctor that is trained in Essure can perform the procedure in his or her office. The Essure micro-inserts are made of polyester fibers, nickel-titanium, and stainless steel. After the micro-inserts are placed in the fallopian tubes, your body grows a tissue barrier that prevents the egg from contacting sperm. You will still produce eggs, but they will be absorbed by your body instead of traveling through your fallopian tubes and into your uterus. Studies have shown Essure to be 99.8% effective in preventing pregnancy.
