In brief: Essure
Essure is a thin coil, when inserted into the openings of the tubes from inside the uterus, offers permanent contraception.
Long term complications, such as failure, perforation or pain, are rare.

In brief: Female birth control
Essure is a type of female sterilization.
It is without incisions, and uses small inserts to block the tubal openings. It is considered permanent. It seems to have the lowest failure rate over other sterilization methods. Go to "www.Essure.Com" for more information.
