Benefits of Permanent Birth Control

Why consider permanent birth control? Here are a few reasons:

  • It’s one of the most effective forms of birth control available
  • It does not contain any hormones
  • You can leave the hassles of the daily birth control routine behind!*

*Until you have had your Essure Confirmation Test and your doctor has confirmed that you can rely on Essure for permanent birth control, you must continue to use another form of birth control to prevent pregnancy.
