Adiana Permanent Birth Control

[deleted account] ( 11 moms have responded )

Has anyone tried Adiana yet? I am thinking about it, but it is so new that there is virtually no first hand info on-line. If you know anyone who has tried it, could you put me in touch with them via email?

Hello. I had the Adiana done September 2010. At three months one tube was still open and by six months both tubes were shown blocked on the HSG test. BUT, I am now six weeks pregnant with baby #5. NOT was I was planning. Therefore, I DO NOT recommend the prodecure. It was a breeze to have it done, but it has proven itself not effective. If you do choose Adiana, I highly advise that both partners do something permanent!!

I just had it done today with Dr Christian (Baptist Beaches)... My insurance coverd it all, with a $25 co-pay. It is similar to Essure but its a little different with what is put in the tubes to stop the process of pregnancy from occuring. The Essure procedure leaves a little wired spring in the tubes and the Adiana procedure leaves a little sponge like blocker that grows into the scar tissue that is caused from the energy heated skin of the tubes to grown arond and into. I went in @8am for the discussion of the process of the day, was hookedup to an IV at 845 and was walked to the procedure room at 9am.. The doctors gave me the medication to help me "sleep" and I was home and doin dishes by 1030am.... There may be a day of recovery for some but I am feeling as I did yesterday... I was considering the Essure originally but was just told about the Adiana a few weeks ago and was scheduled for it a week later. I am sure the Essure is just as effective but I know if I had to do it again, Adiana is awesome... !!!

Do your research on Essure, alot of people are having ALOT of different problems with it. I was thinking about that one too until I found out it has nickel in it. I am allergic to nickel. Adiana improves on a lot of Essures negatives. It is silicone (metal-free), much smaller, and it is not sharp, so it prevents fallopian tube puncture. It is also permanent and covered by most insurance. I have heard the 3 month follow up procedure (where they fill your uterus with dye to make sure the tubes are blocked) is the worst part, but mind you, I have only found 2 reviews from real people online.

I had the Adiana placed in October then the recheck today.I'm 100% blocked both tubes!! I have 5 kids and in my opinion all options other than a hysterectomy aren't 100% guaranteed!! So I'm taking my chances! I have had zero problems...I recommend totally!!

yes, Candeta, please keep posted on here as to how the 3month check goes, I haven't had it done yet, still saving money because my insurance does not cover any sterilization services :( But the Adiana is much less cost than a tubal so I'm getting there and doing as much research as possible in the mean time!

I had the Adiana procedure done 3 weeks ago. I was awake the entire time, I was given pain meds and a shot of a local to numb the area. They said it would be about a 10 minute procedure, but it ended up taking an hour and 45 minutes because one of the tubes was being difficult. The good thing was it didn't hurt at all. I had some spotting for a few days and a little cramping, but nothing too bad. So far I am happy with the procedure, I'll let you know how the 3 month check goes! :)

No, I never had it done. Mostly due to cost. My insurance only covers it after my deductible is met and it was going to be over $4k.

Interesting, I haven't heard about it yet but from looking at there website it seems to be similar to Essure. I plan on having Essure done sometime in the next 6-12 months. I would love to hear about anyone who's had it done!
