In-Office Essure Sterilization
Effective & Easy Permanent Birth Control
Essure is an extremely effective form of birth control that provides an extensive range of benefits. No surgery is required and the procedure can be done in a few minutes right here in our Arlington Heights obstetrics and genecology center. Once the procedure is complete, you will need to use another form of birth control for three months as your body and the inserts form a natural barrier that prevents sperm from reaching the egg. After three months, an Essure confirmation test will verify that you are protected from unplanned pregnancy. It is important to note that this contraceptive option is permanent and not reversible.
Some of the benefits of Essure include:
- No surgery or anesthesia during the procedure
- Procedure performed in less than 10 minutes
- No interference with your hormones or natural menstrual cycle
- Over 99% effective in preventing pregnancy
