Has anyone heard of the permanent birth control solution called Essure? I was on my OB's website and saw that they do the procedure. It is an in-office procedure that is supposedly quicker, less painful, with quicker recovery time than a traditional tubal ligation. I have also read some pretty scary horror stories about it. I might question my OB about it at my next appointment.

I've done a little reading on it, but keep forgetting to talk to my doctor about it. I've heard some very good things, and very bad things, about it, so I'm a little hesitant, well that and we haven't decided if we want to go permanent or not. I need to write down to ask my doc, and insurance, about it too.

I want to inquire concerning it as an option. We are certain that we are done.

I've never researched it but a friend of mine had it done. She was one of those people who could sit on a toilet seat and get pregnant (seriously all three of her kids were opps and each of them were a "opps forgot the condom one time" type of night when she and her SO had been drinking) Anyways she had it done and said it was pretty easy, a little uncomfortable. She had no problems after and was back to normal pretty quickly. They did one tube at a time and checked each one to make sure it was blocked. Its worked for her and its been almost 3 years.

My friend got it after she had her last baby and just recently suffered an ectopic pregnancy because it didn't fully take effect. What I'd do is go ahead and do the procedure but before having unprotected sex get your tubes checked by a fertility doctor its a relatively easy dye and ultrasound process and would put your mind at ease.
