  • I had it done 3 1/2 years ago and I love it! It was done in the drs. office.The only medication I had to take as tylenol. I went back to work the next day. You do need to use other birth control for about 3 months until a follow-up test to make sure the scarring is there and nothing can get by. I don't know if you need to wait a certain amount of time after given birth to have it done or not. There is an essure web site that may have more info. It is permanant.
