Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for your question.

For the benefit of all our readers, Essure is a non surgical permanent method of birth control .

During insertion of the Essure system, your health care provider uses flexible tube with a small camera (hysteroscope) inserted through the vagina, into the cervix and up to the uterus. Once the openings to the fallopian tubes are visualized, small metal and fiber coils are passed through the hysteroscope and into your fallopian tubes. The Essure system causes scar tissue to form around the coils, blocking your fallopian tubes and preventing sperm from reaching the egg.

This procedure is not reversible. I do not think there is a chance that you could be pregnant. Are your periods regular? Have you missed a period?

Contact your primary care physician or gynecologist and report your symptoms.
