Essure permanent birth control
Essure Permanent Birth Control is a non-surgical permanent birth control method that works by blocking sperm from traveling through your fallopian tubes. Essure devices are placed in each fallopian tube. Then, over the next three months, your body will form a permanent barrier around the inserts. This does not affect ovulation or your menstrual cycle. Since the eggs are not fertilized, they will be absorbed back into your body. You will have a confirmation test three months after the procedure to check that your fallopian tubes are completely blocked.
This procedure is completed in our office and requires a very short recovery. Most women can resume normal activities in one to two days. Click here to learn more about Essure Permanent Birth Control, or call 336-765-5470 to schedule an appointment with a provider at Novant Health WomanCare.
