Anyone had that new procedure the ESSURE instead of going to the hospital to get their tubes tied?

I am almost 3 weeks after and STILLL bleeding, STILLL Cramping and apparently this is "normal" although NOT in the brochure nor did they tell me it'd be like this. Then the said I'd need to be safe for the next three months till it took full effect then after the procedure gave me the 3 month Depot shot..saying it'd be very harmful if I didn't not have it done.. I'm SO pissed about this... I wish with all I had I would have gone and gotten the surgery.. vent done

  • It's very normal. I bleed for like 4-5 weeks afterward. But it is so worth it! It's been almost a year since I had it down and it's great! I also haven't had a cyst since then and I got them a lot while I had periods.

  • My girlfriend had it done and because of the way it works (your body grows scar tissue around the foreign body) it takes 3 months or more to take full effect. They did not however "force" her to get a depo shot just told her she had to use back up. The bleeding and cramping is normal though and the brochure she had said that (I read it because I was considering it instead of my IUD).

  • I had it done 6 years ago and had no problems. Bleed a little the day of the procedure but that's it. You do need to use back-up protection for 3 months for the scarring to happen. (just like if a guy got a vasectomy you need back-up protection for a bit) We used condoms until I had my test to make sure it was all set.
