During the procedure, which generally takes ten minutes and can be performed in a physician's office, flexible coils are inserted through the vagina and cervix and into the fallopian tubes. Once in place, tissue grows in and around the device over a period of three months and forms a blockage in the fallopian tubes. The build-up of tissue creates a barrier that keeps sperm from reaching the eggs, thus preventing conception. Essure is considered a permanent method of birth control, but the procedure may be surgically reversed.
