  • My midwife recommended against it because it is still relatively new to the market so long term complications are unknown. I was afraid of surgery, but after baby number 5 was more afraid of getting pregnant again so I did it. The surgery is done lathroscopically now and only makes two tiny incisions and it was not bad at all. I was back on my feet doing everything I always do that same night.

  • I haven't but I did look into it. Search Essure testimonials and I came up with a lot of women that had to have it taken out. Some it didn't work and had to have it done again. Or they had so much pain from it that they had to have a hysterectomy. I decided its not for me.
