Back in February 2009 I had the Essure done and it was successful! I haven't had any problems since and Im glad to have this done. Im now 45 yrs and done with having children plus I had my husband get a V-Sec done prior to my procedure. My doctor was great with me throughout the whole time and I also was able to watch the doctor do this on the screen monitor. After the surgery was over I did have a small cramp feeling and a little light-headedness but was able to walk out of the office once done and go back to work the next day and I felt fine then. So I highly recommend if you dont want to go through the tube tying thing the essure is definitely less painful even your doctor will explain that to you and if you know that you dont want anymore children I say go for it! I hope that my comment on this will help someone out there! I dont regret getting this.
