This study has been designed to evaluate an investigational model of the Essure System for Permanent Birth Control. The investigational device is designed to offer all the advantages of the currently approved device. In addition, the investigational device offers immediate, permanent contraception without a three-month waiting period or 90-day confirmation test.
