Do you feel that your family is complete? Are you interested in having your tubes tied, but are worried about an invasive surgery? Are you sick of having to remember to take your birth control pills every single day? If you can say yes to these questions then you might be happy to know that University Park Obstetrics and Gynecology may have a solution to you. We have an incredibly talented OBGYN in Bradenton and we are proud to say that we offer Essure Sterilization.
Essure Sterilization is an innovative form of permanent birth control, also known as sterilization. The procedure involves your doctor placing a small, flexible insert in each of your Fallopian tubes. This procedure requires no incisions and very little recovery time. After the Essure insert has been placed in your Fallopian tube, your body will naturally form it’s own barrier around the insert, which is what prevents pregnancy from happening. It is important to note that you have to keep using your birth control until you have received your Essure confirmation test from your OBGYN. Essure is a wonderful, non-surgical alternative to tubal litigation, but it is not for everyone, and although this is a non-invasive procedure, there can be risks involved.
To see if Essure Sterilization is the right step to take for you and your family, contact out Sarasota Obstetrics office today. Our experienced OBGYN can help you decide if this method of permanent birth control is a good choice for you. Call us today to schedule your appointment.
