Essure® – permanent birth control

Essure is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. And it's non-hormonal.

Essure is a permanent birth control procedure that works with your body to prevent pregnancy. During the Essure procedure, a soft, flexible insert is placed into each of your fallopian tubes. Over the next three months, a barrier forms around the inserts. During this time you must continue using another form of birth control to prevent pregnancy. This barrier, which is made of scar tissue, helps keep sperm from reaching the eggs so pregnancy cannot occur.

Essure was approved by the FDA in 2002. Over 750,000 women and their doctors have chosen Essure for permanent birth control.

 


Dysis Colposcopy for the evaluation of abnormal pap smears

Attending a Colposcopy appointment can be an anxious time, but rest assured that Dr. Jones is using DYSIS then you can relax. DYSIS includes a new technology called Dynamic Spectral Imaging that takes accurate measurements through the course of the examination. The results are summarized in the form of map - which you can ask to see. Dr. Jones will discuss the results with you and determine the best next steps.

What is Coloposcopy?

Colposcopy is a special examination of the cervix performed when there is an abnormal pap smear. The cervix is prepared with special stains to make abnormal cells stand out. Sometimes a biopsy is performed to evaluate those cells further. This exam is performed right in the office.

What to Expect: A speculum is inserted like with a Pap smear and the cervix is visualized directly through the colposcope. You may experience a pinching sensation and/or cramping as samples are taken from the cervix. We use a brand new colposcope called Dysis. Click here to learn about this amazing machine.

Pre procedure: (before) Eat regular meals. You may take over-the-counter pain medication 60 minutes prior to the procedure.

Post procedure: (after) You may have mild cramping. Expect light bleeding and a yellow, mustard-like or coffee ground-like vaginal discharge. This is due to a solution put on the cervix to stop bleeding. We will advise you not to put anything in the vagina or exercise for 2-3 days. Biopsy results are usually available 7-10 days after the procedure.

IUD Placement:

The IUD prevents pregnancy by interfering with the movement of the sperm inside the uterus and the progestin prevents some women from ovulating (releasing an egg) at all, thus preventing the possibility of pregnancy. The IUD is a good option for women who want to avoid hormonal systemic methods of birth control, do not desire a pregnancy for an extended period of time and want the convenience of not having to do anything on an ongoing basis.
