Essure is a procedure performed so that a woman does not have any more children. It is considered permanent and not able to be reversed if the woman regrets her decision. Couples choose this form of sterilization because there is no surgery involved and most can return to their normal activities in a day or so.
The Essure procedure is performed right in the physician’s office in most cases. The procedure consists of inserting spring like coils into the each of the fallopian tubes and within three months scar tissue forms blocking the fallopian tubes. At around the three-month mark the physician will send the patient for a test called a HSG. This will determine whether the fallopian tubes are completely blocked or not. Up until the HSG the patient is advised to use another form of birth control so that pregnancy does not occur.
With any type of permanent sterilization there are women who regret the choice they have made. Many will go to the physician who has performed the Essure procedure and inquire about Essure removal. They will most commonly be told that the procedure cannot be reversed and they were told that Essure was permanent. The patient is then advised that the only way to get the springs removed is by having a hysterectomy. This news is devastating to those who want more children. When the subject of pregnancy is brought up the physician will usually point the way towards IVF.
Although IVF does help many couples there are some couples that do not want to take this route. And many will keep searching for an alternative treatment. They will ask people as well as search the Internet. And many times they will come up with their answer. The leading tubal reversal has been performing Essure reversal and very successfully. Not only are the Essure coils able to be removed but also pregnancy can follow. This is on the Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center website and the stores are told by the patients themselves.
The reasons Essure reversal happens can be many. There are women that regret not being able to have more children. Those that are having a problem since having the procedure performed as well as those that do not feel whole because they have chosen to have a part of them taken away.
