Essure Permanent Contraception

Essure is a permanent birth control procedure that works with your body to create a natural barrier against pregnancy. This gentle procedure can be performed in our office located in Jacksonville Beach.

The Essure procedure is permanent and is NOT reversible. Therefore, you should be sure you do not want children in the future.

Essure offers women what no birth control ever has

  • No surgery, burning or anesthesia
  • No hormones
  • No slowing down to recover
  • Performed in less than 10 minutes
  • Peace of mind – your doctor can confirm when you can rely on Essure for birth control
  • Trusted by hundreds of thousands of women and doctors for over five years

About the Procedure
Unlike other permanent birth control, the Essure procedure does not require cutting into the body or the use of radiofrequency energy to burn the fallopian tubes. Instead, an Essure trained doctor inserts soft, flexible inserts through the body’s natural pathways (vagina, cervix, and uterus) and into your fallopian tubes. The very tip of the device remains outside the fallopian tube, which provides you and your doctor with immediate visual confirmation of placement.

During the 3 months following the procedure, your body and the inserts work together to form a natural barrier that prevents sperm from reaching the egg. During this period, you must continue using another form of birth control.

After three months, it’s time to get an Essure Confirmation Test to verify you’re protected from the worries of unplanned pregnancy. The test uses a dye and special type of x-ray to ensure both that the inserts are in place and that the fallopian tubes are completely blocked.

While heart disease may often be considered a primary problem for men, it’s actually the leading cause of death for both men and women. Shocking, right?
