Has anyone had an Essure procedure done? I've checked the website and read about it. I was considering getting a tubal ligation, but this seems to be a less invasive surgery. Anyone care to share their experience?

I'm trying to find someone who's had the essure procedure for couples years @ least. A friend just had it done last year, and so far everything is going well.

I had essure two years ago and I love it! I can't tell I have it at all. The placement procedure was incredible easy. I had some cramping for a few days afterwards, but nothing serious. I was able to work the next day. Despite everyone's warnings, the HSG didn't hurt either. I'm a very sensitive person, so for me to not have had any problems I think means a lot. I highly recommend essure.

Finally! A real story. I'm so glad to hear that it worked well for you. I read about the HSG and that had me scared. But I guess every women is different. I'm still debating. Hopefully some other ladies will come around. Thank you for sharing your story.:)

i had the essure procedure done three months ago and go for the hsg test tomorrow. I would classify the actual procedure (i was awake) as moderate-severe as far as pain goes, but i have a LOW threshold. I was pretty out of it that day but felt pretty good the next. I had spotting for a couple weeks after and that was it. my periods have gotten better actually, almost no cramping. i have been on birth control for almost 20 and decided a long time ago i didn't want to have kids. my insurance doesn't cover a TL, so this was the best decision for me

I am curious, ColdSunshine, if you were able to maintain your regular horse riding activity level immediately after the procedure? I ride once a week and do a fair amount of cantering and jumping, and wanted to know for how long I'll have to be off, or take it easy. Any advice will be welcomed!
