I went in to the hospital today for the Essure procedure, which is a non-surgical permanent sterilization procedure. I was in the pre-surgery/recovery room and the nurse was going over my paperwork with me. She said "I see you're having a tubal ligation and Essure." I went
And told her no, I was just having Essure done. She was insistent that the paperwork said I was having both and I told her no, I'm not having a tubal done. She then went to my gyno to tell her I changed my mind and I didn't want the tubal!!!
My gyno came over to ask me if I'd changed my mind and I told her I definitely had not, and what the nurse had told me. My gyno went
and said "No the paperwork says tubal ligation WITH Essure, not and Essure."
I'd nearly had a heartattack thinking I wasn't going to be able to have the procedure done when my first nurse went off to talk to the gyno. But, I had it... I'm home, and very very happy.
