Tubes tied or the esure procedure Damien*Dex*Jaidyn's Momma 18 kids; Pennsylvania 1535 posts

I was just wondering which is the best route to go. This is our 3rd pregnancy. My first son passed away at 32 weeks and then we had our second son who is 3. We found out we are having a girl so we decided no more babies after this. I want to get as much input as I can. I still have quite awhile but figure it wouldn't hurt to find some things out. thanks!

Vasectomy is the easiest and fastest, and has the least pain involved and least complications.

Also, you never have to worry about him fathering children with another woman.

i've heard negative things on both.
essure was on my list to think about, but i've heard of quite a few complications stemming from it.
have you poked through google on either of them yet?

Yeah we talked about that. He doesn't have insurance so its cheapest if I get it done. lol. Although down the road he will def be getting it done.

Not yet. My cousin had the esure done and the coils went to far into her tubes and she started getting really sick so they had to take everything out.

It is worth paying the money and just having the Vasectomy. Seriously. Lady parts are complicated and a lot of women have problems after tubal. As for Essure, I had to look it up and have never heard of it before - I wouldn't do a procedure that hasn't been tried and tested for at least 10 years personally.

I had my tubes tied 6 weeks ago after baby #3. So far so good no complications.
