birth control without surgery?

See if the FemBloc Study is right for you

Sciatic Nerve

If you do not wish to become pregnant now or in the future, permanent birth control may be right for you. Currently, the most common method for permanent birth control is a surgical procedure called tubal ligation (getting your “tubes tied”). Although effective, tubal ligation involves general anesthesia, skin incisions, and recovery from surgery.

Right now, doctors at select women’s health centers are conducting a research study for the FemBloc® Permanent Contraceptive System – an in-office procedure for permanent birth control that does not involve surgery or incisions. Participants in the FemBloc Study will receive the FemBloc System and all study-related care at no cost.

CLEAR Study for Sciatica
What is FemBloc?

The FemBloc Permanent Contraceptive System is being studied as a permanent birth control method that does not involve surgery or incisions, and is performed right in the doctor's office. The FemBloc approach consists of two steps:

Step 1 – FemBloc Treatment: A thin plastic tube is placed into your uterus, and a small amount of liquid (1/4 teaspoon) is delivered towards your fallopian tubes. The thin tube is then removed, leaving only the liquid behind. The liquid triggers a natural healing process that causes the fallopian tubes to close over time, which is how FemBloc is designed to prevent pregnancy.

Step 2 – FemBloc Confirmation: About 3 months later, your doctor will perform an ultrasound in the office to confirm that your fallopian tubes are closed.

The FemBloc Permanent Contraceptive System is now being offered at select women’s health centers through a new research study. If you qualify and choose to join the study, you will receive the FemBloc System and all-study related care at no cost. You do not need insurance to participate.
