Did you know there was a non-invasive permanent birth control option for women? I had no idea until a few weeks ago when a friend told me she had the Essure procedure done.
I immediately went online and started researching. At this point I thought my only options were going under the knife (not something I want to do) or begging the husband for another 3 years (by that time I’ll be almost menopausal anyway) to get a vasectomy.
Essure works by creating a natural barrier within your fallopian tubes to prevents sperm from reaching your eggs. It’s not hormonal and does not require surgery. Actually the procedure take 10 minutes IN OFFICE! Click here to read the specifics.
I felt like someone was keeping this secret from me!
That’s right. Finished. No more kids for me. I’m glad I changed my mind from 1 to 2, but a third would kill me, or should I say us.
My friend’s husband said it best: “I don’t do zone defense, only man-to-man.”
When did you know you were finished? Did you make a move towards permanent birth control? Am I the only one who didn’t know about this option?
