Essure



Essure is a controversial permanent method of birth control.  Its controversy arises from the side effects that women have reported–including ‘migration’ of the device and pain– which we’ve briefly discussed in a past episode.  In this episode, Katee takes us along as she explores this no-longer available sterilization device, which manufacturer Bayer is removing from the market citing a lack of consumer interest.

Postpartum contraception



In this previously aired classic, we discuss why women should be thinking about birth control while they’re pregnant, what kinds of birth control we can use postpartum, and the methods and timing of those options. Also, our group text kept autocorrrecting postpartum to post-party and we kind of like that.
