My experience was pleasant at first. I found a doctor that would preformed the procedure and that I liked. Dr. Pickel! Yep you heard me right her real last name is Pickel!! She's very nice, and I will definitely continue seeing her. Josh and I went for the preliminary visit to meet her and discuss our decision to have the Essure done. She was very thorough making sure we understood everything and that we knew what we wanted. We then had to wait about a month to have the actual procedure.
The morning of our new beginning. Exciting and a little scared. We arrive at the office, a little early of course, to fill out paperwork. The nurse takes us in the back to go over a few things, and to give me a pill to help me relax, and not feel so much pain. It was supposed to make me woozy, but I suppose since I'm on so many Bi-polar med's my body doesn't react to woozy med's the same.

I am very happy with our choice. Now Josh and I can enjoy our married life without the worries of becoming pregnant. A very real fear we both had.
Anyone else have a Essure story? Or thinking about having Essure?
