First of all, congratulations on the baby :) I do not have the Essure, or my tubes tied yet, but I know a few people who have had one or the other. I have heard no complaints about having a tubal ligation, but the people I know who got the Essure regretted it almost immediately. One of my close friends got it and she went to the ER 4 times (maybe more) within the first 6 months because of severe pain (to the point where she was vomiting and passed out), excessive bleeding, etc. She still has problems out of it, and she's had it almost a year. She had an infection about 4 months after it was put in, and at one point they thought it had perforated her tube. Another time, they thought it had fallen out. She could hardly walk or breathe after she got it because the pain was so intense. She said the pain didn't begin until she had had it for about a month. Before that, just mild cramping.
