I am wondering about if this will be good for me or not. I have tried the IUD paragurd and I had problems with it and i took the pill yaz and that really didnt work for me either. I am wondering if there is anyone that had problems with birthcontrol but this(Essure) worked with them. Thanks for commenting.

  • You shouldn't. You don't have a metal wand stuck up you. You can always go in for a consultation and see if it's for you. I was going to get it done but I moved to another state and the state I live in won't do it/offer it.

  • I had the Essure procedure about 1-1/2 years ago. I've not had any problems.

  • I'm considering it, for when we're done having children. Its really the one I'm leaning most toward, even if we have a good 5-10 years before I even start thinking about being ready.

  • I had it done. I LOVE it. No PTLS risk like with a tubal ligation. Plus, unlike a vasectomy or tubal ligation, it cannot self reverse without my knowledge. I was down and out for a day and that was it. My periods are WAY shorter now and back to the way they were before I had kids.
