Essure is a permanent birth control procedure that works with your body to prevent pregnancy.
The BAYER pharmaceutical company owns Essure. The formal description about Essure via the Planned Parenthood website is as follows.
Unlike other permanent birth control, the Essure procedure does not require cutting into the body or the use of electricity to burn the fallopian tubes. Instead, an Essure trained doctor inserts soft, flexible inserts through the body's natural pathways (vagina, cervix, and uterus) and into your fallopian tubes.
