I am pretty sure I am done having kids after my current pregnancy, but I do not want a tubiligation. I saw a procedure that was less invasive, as it is done transvaginally, but I am wondering if there are any long term affects. Has anyone participated in this method or have additional information?

Search for Essure in MDC as well as online.

Here's what I've found so far tonight elsewhere:

1. Vasectomy: ANY history of prostate cancer in his family? You HAVE to know in order to consider a vascectomy for yourself.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vasectomy

warnings www.dontfixit.org

someone else said of vascectomy: Much lower risk involved,
cheaper, no hospitalization, less recuperation time, no heavy anesthetic and
if the ends of the tubes are cauterized as well as knotted there is not a
hope of the little devils growing back together as they are want to do.

This procedure also prevents Granulomas a benign (non cancerous) lump, which
may develop as a result of leakage of sperm from the cut end of the vas into
the scrotal tissues resulting in an inflammatory reaction. This lump may be
painful or sensitive to touch and is generally treated with
anti-inflammatory agents. Granuloma or an infection is pretty much the
worst problem associated with a vasectomy.

2. Essure:

3. Tubal Ligation. There are detractors. Read the study info on the veggieboards.com under Essure above. tubal.org
someone said look for tubal ligation using lasers

I had the essure procedure done a year ago. It took about an hour from start to finish, (that's including the wait in the waiting room). I had cramps and a little bleeding for about 2 days, then I was fine. I've only had mild little cramps a couple of times in the past year, usually when I'm about to get my period. Anything else you'd like to know?
