Essure is the only nonsurgical permanent birth control available. It can help you stop worrying about an unplanned pregnancy. Essure is a short 10-minute nonsurgical procedure that can be performed right in your doctor’s office with little down time. It does not contain or release any hormones and is 99% effective at permanently preventing pregnancy.

How Does It Work

The small Essure inserts are placed into your fallopian tubes by your doctor. These inserts work with your body to form a natural barrier that keeps sperm from reaching the eggs, preventing pregnancy. While the natural barrier forms over time, another form of birth control must be used.
