  • I had this done 3 years ago and love it. It was done in the office, took maybe 1/2 hour. My hubby was with me during it. After there was a little cramping and spotting. After it was done we went out for lunch and then I rested the rest of the day. I was back at work the next day. During the 3 months while the scarring is happening you need to use another form of bc. The testing to checking if the tubes were closed was a little painful but not too bad. There are a few people where it doesn't scar over or the coils fall out but I had no problems.

  • Thank you, anon 4:56. That was so helpful. Sheesh. Maybe she didn't want to google it; maybe she wanted some first-hand testimony from users on a site she trusts. But thanks for your smarmy input.
