Trista Sutter Announces She Will Get the Essure Permanent Birth Control Procedure

Trista Sutter, the Original Bachelorette, Decides Her Family is Complete After the Birth of Her Second Child

VAIL, Colo., April 8 /PRNewswire/ -- After the arrival of her second child (a baby girl named Blakesley Grace born on April 3, 2009), Trista Sutter, the star of ABC's first Bachelorette show, has announced that with two healthy children, this will be the last child for the couple. Trista plans to get the Essure(R) permanent birth control procedure.


On July 26, 2007, the Sutters welcomed their first child, Maxwell Alston Sutter. In 2008, the couple announced that they were expecting a second child. Trista had expressed interest to her physician that she was considering having a tubal ligation after the delivery. Trista and her doctor had already determined that she would be delivering via C-section, and the couple felt their family would be complete after the second child. However, after speaking with her doctor about birth control options, Trista decided that the Essure procedure was a better solution for her.

By choosing the Essure procedure, Trista will avoid the added pain and recovery time of getting her tubes tied combined with her C-section. The Essure procedure is performed three months after childbirth and this waiting period allows Trista to let her body recover and spend time bonding with her new baby. Trista will have the added benefit of the Essure Confirmation Test, so she can be confident that her procedure is a success.

Essure is a permanent birth control procedure for women that can be performed in minutes in the comfort of a doctor's office. The procedure is often preferred by women because it does not require a hospital visit, cutting into the body, being put under general anesthesia, scarring, hormones or much downtime for recovery. Since receiving FDA approval in 2002, the Essure procedure has become a trusted solution for women and physicians.

"Now that we have the two healthy children we always dreamed of, Ryan and I have decided that our family is the perfect size, and we want to devote our time and energy to them," says Trista Sutter. "After looking at all my options I realized that Essure is the best fit for me and my lifestyle. I like it because the procedure can be performed in my doctor's office without general anesthesia, and the quick recovery means I can get back to my life and my family right away."

The Essure procedure is 99.8% effective with zero pregnancies reported in clinical trials.

About the Essure Procedure:

The Essure procedure is a permanent birth control method that can be performed in the comfort of a physician's office in about 10 minutes(1) without hormones, cutting, burning or the risks associated with general anesthesia or tubal ligation. Small, flexible micro-inserts are placed in a woman's fallopian tubes through the cervix without incisions. Over the next three months, the body forms a natural barrier around the micro-inserts to prevent sperm from reaching the egg. Essure is 99.8% effective(2) with zero pregnancies reported in clinical trials. The procedure is covered by most insurance plans, and when it is performed in a doctor's office the cost may be as low as a simple co-pay.

Three months after the Essure procedure, a doctor performs an Essure Confirmation Test to confirm that the fallopian tubes are fully blocked, and that the patient can rely on Essure for permanent birth control. Essure was FDA-approved in 2002, and more than 250,000 women worldwide have undergone the Essure procedure.

About Trista Sutter:

Now a Vail, Colorado resident with her husband Ryan, Trista Sutter (formerly Rehn), was born in Indianapolis, Indiana and raised in St. Louis, Missouri.

While working as a pediatric physical therapist in Miami, Florida, Trista was looking for something new and exciting and applied for a new show called "The Bachelor." After being chosen to appear as one of 25 bachelorettes on the ABC hit, she achieved overnight fame as the runner-up who was not ultimately picked as The Bachelor's dream girl. Not being chosen proved to be the best thing that could've happened, because she was then asked to become the first Bachelorette and ended up meeting the man of her dreams in handsome firefighter Ryan Sutter. On the finale, she said "yes" to his televised marriage proposal and after a year engagement they planned a dream wedding for a special TV wedding that they shared with over 20 million people who had watched their love story unfold. To this day, they are the only couple from "The Bachelor" and "The Bachelorette" to actually tie the knot, and one of few to even remain together.

In addition to her involvement on the Bachelor and the Bachelorette, Trista has since been busy starting an eco-friendly diaper bag line called "Trista Baby," working as a stay-at-home mom, and participating in the first season of the Emmy-nominated, "Dancing with the Stars."
