Questions, experiences, opinions and thoughts on Essure

Hello, everyone. I'm new to the boards. I'm a 36 YO childless-by-choice woman who is seriously considering Essure - permanent non-surgical sterilization. I'd be quite happy to never have to worry about having children again, and I've known I did not want children since I was 17 and have never wavered in it.

That is not my problem.

I have the basic concerns about the procedure and the pain, of course. I wanted to see if anyone had experiences with it. I've heard both good and bad things.

I also find in myself some curious emotions about being sterile. It seems like I should have more problems with it, but mostly I am comfortable with it. Sometimes it just pops into my head, though.

I have my surgical consult in May, so it's not like I don't have plenty of time. At this point, I see no reason not to go through with it. But any thoughts anyone has are welcome!

ETA: My other half and long-term partner, whom I have been with for fifteen years, also does not want children, so that's not an issue either, and he is also considering a vasectomy. But my birth control is first and foremost my responsibility.
