The Essure® procedure, a method of female permanent birth control that does not involve cutting or general anesthesia, is now available at Planned Parenthood. In the Essure procedure, a soft micro-insert is placed into each fallopian tube to prevent pregnancy forever.
The Essure procedure is fast, permanent, easy and effective. Unlike a tubal or vasectomy, the Essure procedure has these advantages:
· 99.8% effective
· No cutting/ No burning
· Provided in our clinic
· No general anesthesia required
· Fast recovery – most women resume their normal activities within one day
