I do not want any more children. I want to focus solely on the child that I have. When I further develop my life I want to travel freely and not have more children to worry about. What is your experience be it positive or negative with a tubal?

And actually the Essure is placed in order for scar tissue to build up around it essentially closing your tubes permanently. I was offered that also, but did not like the idea of something being permanently placed inside my body for scar tissue to build over. It takes 3 months to be effective. I was not comfortable with the idea. And with the tubal, I was really only off my feet for a day or 2.

Mine was absolutely fine. I had it 3 months after my daughter was born, and went home the same day. But, my periods tend to be a lot more crampy and pain than before getting the surgery done.

Some doctors will make you wait until either you are at a certain age, or have a certain number of kids.

Also, there is indeed a failure rate on them. Just be warned.

I didn't have a tubal but my sister did and she wishes she hasn't. She said she had a hard time healing and caring for her children afterwards. I went a different route and got the Essure birth control. It is permanent birth control and you are sterile. I had it done 7 years ago and I love it. It took 30 mins and there was no surgery or scars. They gave me a Valium to relax me and went thru my cervix, cut out a small piece of each tube and replaced it with a metal and titiaum alloy tube. That way the sperm can't get thru to the eggs and visa versa. There was only slight cramping afterwards and within an hour I was back to my normal self and able to do anything I wanted. Might be something worth looking into if you don't want to go thru surgery and healing afterwards.
