When you know your family is complete, you’re ready to consider permanent birth control. More and more women like you are making the decision to have the Essure procedure to prevent unplanned pregnancy so they can fully enjoy the lives they have built for themselves. They’re choosing lives without hormones or the hassle of other birth control methods, and the confidence of knowing that they are protected from unplanned pregnancy forever.
