Hi... help! I was scheduled to have the Essure procedure the end of March however after reading this tonight I called & left a message at my doctor's office to cancel it and go with a regular tubal. I am now reading though the success rate of that is not the greatest either. Can someone help me??? I feel lost. I adopted a son and have a little girl (foster Mom) for 5 years we tried to adopt now we have joint custody with the bio parents. I do not want to have a baby... EVER and cannot be on BC due to a liver hemangioma and minor other issues. I need to know if anyone knows the statistical information on the failure rate of a Tubal Ligation (where they burn the tube in several places.) Thanks!
