I am having it done when we get our taxes back just wondered how other women like or dislike it? Any changes in periods or new or different or more pain with periods and/or ovulation? Any new symptoms since having it done? Any info would be enlightening and helpful. I love that I won't have to be cut open!!
For those of you who haven't heard of it this is what the brochure says:
Essure is different than the traditional method of a surgical tubal ligation. With Essure, there is no cutting or burning of the body. Instead, an Essure trained doctor inserts spring-like coils, called micro-inserts, through the body's natural pathways (vagina, cervix and uterus) and into your fallopian tubes.
During the first 3 months following the procedure, your body and the mico-inserts work together to form a tissue barrier that prevents sperm from reaching the egg. During this time, you will need to use another form of birth control.
After 3 months, your doctor will perform an Essure Confirmation Test, a special type of x-ray to confirm that your tubes are completely blocked and that you can rely on the Essure micro-inserts for birth control.
The Essure procedure is the first and only FDA approved permanent birth control procedure to have zero pregnancies in the clinical trials.
