Sterilization for Women

  1. Essure Procedure –
    - Small, flexible coil inserted into each fallopian tube through the vagina
    - Each coil causes scar tissue to build in the fallopian tubes to block them
    - It isn’t effective for the first 3 months while scar tissue is forming
    - Minor procedure without any incisions
    - Permanent birth control
    - 99% effective
     
  2. Tubal Ligation –
    - Surgical procedure where each fallopian tube is blocked/clamped to prevent the joining of the egg and sperm
    - Surgery includes small incisions
    - Permanent birth control
    - 99% effective

Sterilization for Men

  1. Vasectomy –
    - Minor surgical procedure that blocks the vas deferens to keep sperm from mixing with semen
    - Permanent birth control
    - It takes approximately 3 months for sperm to be used up, so another method must be used during this time
