I plan to get Essure this year sometime (I kinda put my whole life on hold for grad school, but now I'm done).

@SL5000 How was the confirmation test after you got Essure? I've heard it's worse than the procedure itself.
Worse than the procedure? No, it was just a regular x-ray.

The procedure was a piece of cake, too. It takes 10 minutes, no pain, no incisions, no bleeding.
Thanks. I had read things about the xray tech forcing the liquid (forgot what it's called) in to prove that the tubes were completely blocked, and that being a painful experience.

I'm sure that, like all things, for every bad experience you can find there are dozens of good ones that no one felt compelled to write about.
I eta'd that the doctor presses on you for a few secs but not in a painful way...just firmly.
