In brief: Essure effective

Essure provides sterilization by using small flexible microinserts which help the tubes to naturally occlude.
Three months alter an hsg is ordered to confirm that the tubes are blocked. This has allowed essure to have the lowest failure rate compared to other methods. Another advantage us that it is incision-less. Talk with your md about risks/benefits and visit essure.Com for more info.

In brief: Yes

Essure is the best, safest, permanent, irreversible contraceptive method for women.
In office, local anesth. And a confirmation test after.

In brief: Minimally invasive

Essure is done in an office setting with a local anesthetic through the vagina.
No incisions and recovery is rapid. You leave the office about 15 to 30 minutes later and may not need anything more for pain. 3 months later a test is done to confirm closure tubal occlusion. A tubal in the or carries more risks.

In brief: Tubal ligation

Nationally, this is a 5% regret rate after sterilization, so take time to make certain of your decision.
Also, check with your partner about vasectomy. Hysteroscopy essure is definitely the first choice. The recovery time is about one day. However, there is an one in ten chance that the essure procedure can not be completed. In that case, the laparoscopy procedure is still a good back-up.
