Essure is a form of permanent birth control for women that doesn’t require a surgical procedure. The device is a coil-shaped insert designed to bend and conform to each patient’s body shape, and is made of polyester fibers, nickel-titanium alloy and stainless steel. The insert is placed into each fallopian tube by a doctor, and once inserted, the body creates a natural barrier forms around the inserts to prevent sperm from reaching the eggs.
