  • My recovery was a little rough. But it always is with me! I had mine done the day after delivery. My periods were a little heavy a few months after. But it's been two years, I feel great. No problems. Very happy I did it.My body needed a break, My doctor won't put me on hormonal BC because I have really bad reactions to it, and I'm allergic to latex. Soooo it's made my life a lot easier!

  • I had one years ago. There were no problems, but there are minor cramps and pains for awhile after surgery. (just from the incisions-which are small)

  • I had one 10 months ago, for a while I had constant pain, sex was uncomfortable. That has all since subsided the only thing that annoys me is that my period has yet to get on some sort of schedule meaning 24 -29 day cycle, perios lating anywhere from 2-4 days

  • I had Essure done. No problems. I love it. Plus it cannot self reverse without my knowledge like a vasectomy or tubal ligation.
