Has anyone one else had the Essure birth control done?

I've got an IUD in right now and we have 3 girls my hubby wants a boy and so do I but we just financially cant afford to have another. I'm wanting to get the Essure done cause its permanent and our last 2 babies were a suprise( i got preg while on birthcontrol). Just wondering if anyone else has had it done and if you like it?

  • I considered it when I saw it's ad here on cafemom, but I found too many women online who said it never closed completely and they couldn't repeat it was pointless. And others that got pregnant because it didn't fully close. So, in some cases it's not done correctly and I don't want to take that chance.

  • I wanted to do it, but my insurance wouldn't pay for it and I had to get my tubes tied the old fashioned way...good luck!
