The Essure system is a permanent birth control procedure that utilizes soft, flexible inserts that are placed into your fallopian tubes by your doctor. During the three months following the procedure, your body and the inserts work together to form a natural barrier that prevents pregnancy. During this period, you must continue using another form of birth control (other than an IUD). After three months, a confirmation test is performed to verify the success of the procedure. The test uses a dye and special type of X-ray to ensure that the inserts are in place and that the fallopian tubes are completely blocked. Essure is an effective contraception procedure that does not utilize hormones, so your periods should continue more or less in their natural state.
