Are you done having children? It’s a tough question for some couples, and many women are unaware of a new permanent birth control that does not require surgery.
There comes a point in the lives of most couples when they ask themselves, “Are we done having children?” A new study found that while most couples have had this conversation, there is little discussion between women and healthcare providers about permanent birth control. There’s a new procedure you may not even know about.
Gynecologist Dr. Barbara Levy says many women find themselves waiting for their husbands to have vasectomies, but now there’s a new surgery-free and hormone-free permanent birth control for women; it’s called the Essure Method.
After 3 months, your doctor will perform a confirmation test, a special type of X-ray to confirm that your tubes are completely blocked. Again, it’s the Essure Method, and more than 500,000 women have done it. It’s 99.9% effective.
There are several doctors in Kansas who perform the Essure Method. If you would like more information about the procedure or a doctor in your area, you can go to kake.com and click “find it.”
