Essure Experiences?

I was talking with a friend about this method of permanent birth control and was curious if any of y'all have done it vs. getting a tubal ligation. I have quite a few friends who are able to have vaginal births and who's dh's refuse to get a vasectomy and so were interested in ESSURE when the time comes to be done (as it's less invasive than a tubal).

I knew my doctor preformed them and so brought it up, but I have never heard stories from a woman who's gotten the coils.

Re: Essure Experiences?

I've had a tubal... I regret it. I have tubal syndrome and it is not pleasant.

My only experience with Essure is this - a very good friend had it done after the birth of her 4th. I guess they implant them and then you go in a few months later to have a scan to make sure the coils are implanted. My friend went in for the verification, and was told they were in place and she was cleared to have sex (until then she had been using protection). She went on her merry way, and a few months later was pregnant. They did an ultrasound and the coil was gone. She went on to have her baby, and then afterwards had an xray, and they found the coil burrowing through her abdomen! She had to have it surgically removed. It was really scary, she was having lots of pain from the coil migrating inside of her but they couldn't do anything because she was pregnant at the time.

I was thinking about it, but googled and discovered they have nickel in them. I have a skin reaction anytime I wear any jewelry with nickel and so it would be a bad idea for me. You can google other people's experiences and that may help...
