Have You Considered Essure Permanent Birth Control?

By November 19, 2012

Deciding whether or not its time to seek permanent birth control is a major life decision. It may be helpful to know that voluntary sterilization is the most popular birth control methods in the US. Whereas men only have the option of a vasectomy for permanent sterilization, women can choose between a tubal ligation, a surgery that closes off a woman's fallopian tubes (also known as having your tubes tied). If you are thinking about taking this route, you may want to learn more about Essure.

Essure is a non-surgical,minimally-invasive permanent contraceptive option. Celebrities like former Olympian Picabo Street and Trista Sutter (the original Bachelorette) have been openly sharing their Essure decisions and experiences with the hopes of educating all women about this non-surgical permanent alternative.
