When couples are finished having kids, many consider a permanent birth control procedure from the woman having her "tubes tied" to the man getting a vasectomy. Fifty-eight percent of lilsugar readers said they'd consider the Essure option that doesn't require any cutting.

The method has been around for about five years and garnered attention for being an anesthesia-free sterilization option. In the video below you see the doctor discuss the method and perform the procedure. What’s your take?
