Adiana Permanent Contraception is a safe, simple, minimally invasive procedure that permanently prevents pregnancy. It works by stimulating your body’s own tissue to grow in and around tiny, soft inserts that are placed inside your fallopian tubes.
You’ll need to talk to your doctor to find out for sure. To get started, take a look at the following statements, and check all that apply to you:
If you are certain you do not want children in the future and have checked any of the statements above, you should talk to your doctor about Adiana Permanent Contraception.
The Adiana procedure does not cut through the skin and can be performed in your doctor's office with or without local anesthesia.
The entire procedure typically takes less than 12 minutes. Most women in the clinical trial reported little or no pain, and returned to their regular activities within a day.
Once your tubes are completely blocked, Adiana Permanent Contraception is comparable to tubal ligation, or “having your tubes tied”, in preventing pregnancy.
A slender, flexible instrument is passed through the body’s natural openings to deliver a low level of energy to a small section of each fallopian tube. A tiny, soft insert is placed in each of your fallopian tubes, right where the energy was applied.
Adiana Permanent Contraception works by stimulating your body’s own tissue to grow in and around tiny, soft inserts that are placed inside your fallopian tubes.
After the Adiana procedure, new tissue will grow in and around the Adiana inserts. After 3 months,the Adiana HSG (hysterosalpingogram) Confirmation Test is performed to confirm your tubes are completely blocked. You must use an alternate form of birth control during these 3 months. Once your tubes are completely blocked, sperm can no longer reach the eggs released by your ovaries and you can rely on Adiana for birth control.
Over the next 3 months, your body’s own tissue grows in and around the Adiana inserts. This completely and permanently blocks the fallopian tubes.
Once your doctor confirms that your fallopian tubes are completely blocked, you will no longer have to rely on a temporary method of birth control.
The Adiana procedure avoids the risks and discomfort of surgical procedures like tubal ligation and vasectomy. The tiny, soft inserts are made of medical-grade silicone, a material long known to be safe in the human body.
Adiana Permanent Contraception is 98.4% effective in preventing pregnancy* once your doctor confirms that your fallopian tubes are completely blocked. No method is 100% effective.
* Based on 3 years of clinical data.
Uses No Drugs
The Adiana inserts use no drugs or hormones that can disrupt your menstrual cycle or affect your natural body chemistry.
Recovery is Quick
With no incisions to heal and no recovery time from general anesthesia, you should experience little or no discomfort and be able to return to your regular activities within a day or two.
Leaves Nothing in Your Uterus
The Adiana inserts are completely contained inside the fallopian tubes leaving nothing in your uterus that might limit your options for future gynecologic tests or procedures.
* There is a small chance that your doctor will not be able to place the Adiana inserts in one or both fallopian tubes or that one or both tubes will not be completely blocked, at which point you will be told that you cannot rely on the Adiana inserts for permanent contraception.
Before choosing this or any permanent procedure, you should carefully discuss all of your options with your doctor, including the benefits and risks of the procedure.
