We are frequently asked does health insurance pay for Essure removal? Essure was first approved in 2001. At first not many women opted to have the Essure procedure. As doctors became more comfortable offering Essure and as the public became aware Essure was tubal ligation alternative, more women chose to use Essure for permanent birth control (sterilization). Sterilization is intended to be permanent. Research has shown that a significant number of women will regret their sterilization and desire to have another baby. Some of these women will consider in-vitro fertilization and some will consider surgical reversal of steri...

With advances in assisted reproductive technology (ART), the role of reproductive surgery as the primary treatment of infertility has been questioned. Tubo-peritoneal factor infertility is common, and accounts for 30 –40% of female infertility. The pathology of tubal disease ranges from peritubal adhesions, proximal and/or distal tubal blockage, hydrosalpinx to previous sterilization. In tubo-peritoneal factor infertility, reproductive surgery remains an important option and is complementary to ART.

GintherAbstractMergers that affiliate a hospital with a Catholic owner, network, or system reduce the set of possible reproductive medical procedures since Catholic hospitals have strict prohibitions on contraception. Using changes in ownership of hospitals, we find that Catholic hospitals reduce the per bed rates of tubal ligations by 31%, whereas there is no significant change in related permitted procedures such as Caesarian sections. However, across a variety of measures, we find mini...

Authors: Abstract Female and male sterilization are both safe and effective methods of permanent contraception used by more than 220 million couples worldwide (1). Approximately 600,000 tubal occlusions and 200,000 vasectomies are performed in the United States annually (2-4). For women seeking permanent contraception, sterilization obviates the need for user-dependent contraception throughout their reproductive years and provides an excellent alternative for those with medical contraindications to reversible methods. The purpose of this document is to review the evidence for the safety and effectiveness of femal...
