New Permanent Form Of Birth Control For Women

New Permanent Form Of Birth Control For Women
SEATTLE - Women in our area can now get a permanent form of birth control that's a lot easier than having your tubes tied.

Swedish Medical Center is the first hospital in Seattle to offer women a tiny spring called "essure."

Unlike a tubal ligation, which involves surgery, the sterilization ring requires no cutting and takes just 45 minutes to put in.

Women considering the procedure should know the effects are permanent since the spring blocks the fallopian tubes.
