Permanent contraception options

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX - For women looking at a permanent contraceptive procedure there are many out there.

Dr. Armity Simon said there are more options than a traditional hysterectomy. The options out there are much more improved, making a permanent contraception procedure less painful and less evasive then just a few years ago.

The essure procedure is a non-evasive procedure that Dr. Simon can perform in her office. The procedure blocks a women's tubes using a microfiber piece inserted into the tubes. The procedure is 99.8 percent effective at preventing pregnancy.

This procedure is permanent and women need to know they are done having children before having a permanent contraceptive procedure.

With the new procedure you can be back at work the next day.
