About the Essure^® Procedure

The Essure procedure, FDA approved since 2002, is the only surgery-free and
hormone-free permanent birth control method that can be performed in the
comfort of a physician's office in less than 10 minutes (average hysteroscopic
time) without the risks associated with general anesthesia or tubal ligation.
Soft, flexible inserts are placed in a woman's fallopian tubes through the
cervix without incisions. Over the next three months, the body works with the
inserts to form a natural barrier in the fallopian tubes to prevent sperm from
reaching the egg. Three months after the Essure procedure, an Essure
Confirmation Test is given to confirm that the inserts are in place and that
the fallopian tubes are blocked, verifying that the patient can rely on Essure
for permanent birth control.

The Essure procedure is 99.83% effective based on five years of follow up with
zero pregnancies reported in clinical trials, making it the most effective
permanent birth control available. Essure's 10-year commercial data tracks
closely with its five-year clinical results, and Essure has been proven and
trusted by physicians since 2002. The Essure procedure is covered in the U.S.
by most public and private insurance plans and approximately 730,000 women
worldwide have undergone the procedure.
