Essure: Worry-free permanent birth control

For women who are uncomfortable with the idea of having their tubes tied but would like a permanent method of birth control, Women's Health Associates offers Essure, a safe, effective, surgery-free alternative in permanent birth control.

Essure is a safe, effective, non-surgical method of preventing unwanted pregnancy. It involves a quick procedure in our offices, during which we slide a soft, flexible insert into your fallopian tubes through the natural openings of your body. Because there are no incisions, there is virtually no recovery period to slow down your life.

In addition, Essure is:

Hormone-free. Unlike many temporary methods of birth control, such as the Pill or some IUDs, Essure inserts do not contain hormone and do not cause any hormone-related side effects.
Proven effective. More than 600,000 women and their doctors trust Essure as the most effective* permanent birth control method.
Worry-free. Once we confirm that the insert is blocking your fallopian tubes, you won't have to worry about unplanned pregnancy and the hassles of temporary birth control again.

For details, visit Essure online.

The Essure procedure is covered by many major health insurance providers, including Medicaid. To learn more, please contact us today.
