MetroHealth is home to the highest number of physicians certified in this procedure at one hospital location than any other local health system in the Cleveland area. In addition, MetroHealth has performed more of these procedures than any other institution.
How It Works
During the procedure, small, flexible micro-inserts are placed in the woman’s fallopian tubes through the vagina and cervix. Within three months, the body forms a natural barrier around the micro-inserts that prevents the sperm from reaching the egg. A woman must continue to use another form of birth control during this time.
Three months after the procedure, a doctor will perform a confirmation test to confirm that the tubes are fully blocked and that the woman can rely on insert for permanent birth control. The procedure has been proven to be 99.8% effective
If a women is absolutely sure her family is complete, this is a wonderful and non-invasive option.
