Birth Control - Chester County Ob/Gyn Associates

Essure is a permanent birth control procedure that works with your body to create a natural barrier against pregnancy. This procedure can be performed in a doctor’s office in less than an hour. The Essure procedure has been trusted by women and doctors for over five years. Most Insurance carriers cover Essure and if it is performed in a doctor’s office, then, depending on your Insurance plan, it could cost you as little as a simple co-pay.

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 With Essure, you'll never have to worry about unplanned pregnancy again. Essure is 99.74% effective with pregnancy prevention*, making it the most effective form of permanent birth control available.

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

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 (other than an IUD).

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.

Unlike birth control pills, patches, rings, and some forms of IUDs, Essure does not contain hormones to interfere with your natural menstrual cycle. Your periods should more or less continue in their natural state.
