The Essure procedure can be completed with no down time, surgery or anesthesia. There is no slowing down to recover, so you won't need to take any time away from your busy life.
During the procedure, your health care provider will slide a small, soft insert into your fallopian tubes through the natural pathways of your vagina and cervix. The very tip of each insert remains visible to your provider, providing confirmation of proper placement. The flexible Essure inserts are made from the same trusted silicone-free material used in heart surgery, so they bend and conform to the shape of your fallopian tubes while remaining securely in place.
