Essure: Any choose this method of Birth Control?

I am looking for a permenant form of Birth Control and my OBGYN had suggested Essure as opposed to traditional tubal ligation. IUD/Mirena is not an option for me...been there, tried it, way too many side effects for me. I am one of the first of my friends to KNOW that I am DONE, so I don't have anyone to survey on their experiences. So ladies, anybody here do this? Know anybody who has? I'd love to hear your/their experiences.

I haven't done it yet but am 99% sure I'm going to. I am very encouraged by the primary medical literature I've found but you can always find scary stories about stuff if you look for it. I am more inclined to put my trust in the data from large controlled studies rather than in anecdotal evidence...it is relatively new though so it's not an easy decision to make. Sorry, this totally doesn't help with your question but I have been reading a lot about it lately.

I was 99% sold on it too until I started reading discussion threads on Aphrodite Women's Health Forums.

Holy crap, were there a ton of horrendous experiences after a couple/few years. I cannot believe how many people had the device perforate their fallopian tubes and imbed into their bowels/colon/uterus or "float" around in their abdomen. All of those women ended up needing to have hysterectomies in order to rectify the problem.

I know me, with every cramp, belly ache, back ache, etc I would think something was wrong with one of the devices! I'm starting to think that laproscopic tubal may be the way to go after all

Yeah, I found that forum too. There is also a Facebook page dedicated to women that had complications. Thus my remaining 1% hesitation. I'm interested to see what my doctor has to say.

I refuse BC...hubby got neutered (had to do fertility anyway, but I did not want anymore either).

^ I'm hoping that's the route we take too. We'll decide in a year what our final plan is though.

If I was married or had a long term partner, a vasectomy is absolutely the route I would go as well. It is by far the best and easiest option. IMO.

^ I'm going to be on the pill after baby is here, and (providing there are no complications/csec at delivery) then let him decide in a year if he'd like another of his own, or if our family is big enough at 5. We were both raised as only children, so we both wanted more than one kid. Female bc scares me though, everything has so many side effects. I don't think I'll have a problem convincing him to get a V when we're done.
