What is Essure?
Essure is a birth control device implanted permanently in women to prevent the likelihood of getting pregnant. Essure does not need an incision to place the implant. Instead, your doctor inserts the implants through the vagina and into the fallopian tubes during the procedure. Tissue forms around the inserts over time, creating a barrier preventing the sperms from reaching the eggs for fertilization.
Essure has been removed from the market and is no longer available for implantation due to multiple side effects experienced by many women hence making it ineffective. Therefore, women are advised to consider other control methods and discuss them before considering the best option.
