Yes!: The essure coils are placed inside the fallopian tubes through direct visualization with a camera called a hysteroscope. Using a tampon appropriately should not interfere with the essure at all. It might be prudent to avoid intravaginal manipulation, tampons, sex for the first 24-48 hours as good measure.

Sterilization proc.: An incisionless sterilization procedure performed in the office. Inserts are placed into the fallopian tubes (which transport the egg from the ovaries to the uterus where they are fertilized). They are inserted using a special tool that passes through the vagina, cervix, and uterus, into the fallopian tubes. The insert causes scarring of the tubes so eggs cannot get through. Quick, effective.
