The Essure procedure, FDA approved since 2002, is a permanent birth control method that can be performed in the comfort of a physician’s office in about 10 minutes (average hysteroscopic time) 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 based on four years of follow up, 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.

QuikClot® NoseBleed™: Even a minor nosebleed can be a scary event – especially for children, who are one of the two main groups (along with seniors) who suffer the most from nosebleeds. When the standard treatment methods just don't work fast enough, use QuikClot® NoseBleed gauze. The FDA-approved QuikClot® NoseBleed™ consists of gauze packing impregnated with a specially formulated mineral substance, called Kaolin, which activates factors in blood to promote rapid blood coagulation. The easy-to-apply packing is rolled or folded to fit into an affected nostril. Once inserted and pressure is applied, QuikClot® Nosebleed will stop the bleeding in five minutes or less. By contrast, competing nosebleed products, which are ostensibly cotton pads or packing, take between 10 minutes to 30 minutes to work. These products stop the bleeding by relying on absorption of the blood, making it likely for bleeds to re-occur. Completely safe for use on children, the fast acting QuikClot Nosebleed provides major peace of mind to parents who have to deal with this common health problem, and allows their kids to get back to the business of having fun. MSRP $11.49 for box of five. QuikClot is available nationally at Kroger supermarkets and other leading food, drug and mass retail outlets.
