My OBGYN recommend Essure a year ago to me.  I did a bunch of research and was turned off by the side effects a lot of people claimed to have (cramping, period issues, etc.).  In thinking about it further, I didn’t want to have any foreign object implanted in my body (a foreign object that could potentially come loose).

I’m considering tubal ligation – which seems the least risk for side effects to me.

ETA:  I talked to my OBGYN a couple weeks about my Essure concerns.  She though I was nuts to do the tubal ligation (since the recovery time is longer than the in-office Essure proceedure).  But, it didn’t change my mind about my perceived risks about Essure.
