The days in which total abstention was the only sure-fire way to prevent pregnancy in a woman of childbearing age are definitely over! Today's woman have the luxury of being able to choose from a large variety of birth control options. And, they may be getting less invasive too. Couples who were sure that they never wanted any more children had to undergo operative procedures a tubal ligation or a vasectomy very recently.

Now, there is another permanent birth control method that is less expensive, and relatively easy to put in place. Adiana permanent birth control consists of two inserts, the size of a grain of rice, that are inserted into the fallopian tubes by a gynecologist. The procedure which takes only 12 minutes on average can be carried out under local anesthesia, but even women who do not have any anesthetic placed normally don't experience more than mild discomfort.

After the Adiana placement procedure, tissue will naturally begin to grow around the inserts in the fallopian tubes, thereby blocking off the tubes and preventing pregnancy... permanently! Women who have just had Adiana placed will need to rely on a temporary birth control method like condoms for three months. After that, your gynecologist will test whether the tubes have successfully been blocked with dye. Adiana is very effective at preventing pregnancy.

But, unlike a tubal ligation or a male vasectomy procedure, Adiana cannot be reversed. Once the inserts have been placed, pregnancy is prevented forever. Therefore, this method is only suitable for women who have thought long and hard about family planning, and who have decided that they definitely don't want to get pregnant, ever again. Many insurance policies cover Adiana. If you have to pay out of pocket, the procedure is much less expensive than other permanent birth control methods.
