Essure® is a progressive minimally invasive procedure to have permanent birth control. Essure requires no cutting into the body. Spring-like coils are inserted through the vagina, cervix and uterus and into each Fallopian tube. Essure does not contain any hormones and should not interfere with your natural menstrual cycle. It can be done in the office without general anesthesia and you can return to regular activities the next day.
