I was diagnosed with Lupus and RA in 2011. I am wondering what the risks are by having the Essure Proceedure if you have Lupus. Does anyone have any expierence with this (good or bad) - what should I ask my Rhuematologist or OBGYN? Anything I should look out for?View Thread
Lupylisa, Thank you for your reply... In addition to Lupus I also have Lupus Anticoagulant Disorder, for which I take a blood thinner. I cant take the pill. I was on the Mirena IUD but after removal, when we tried to replace it, (without going into too much detail) my cervix would not cooperate.
As for tubal ligation, I guess the only reason I didn't explore this option is that real surgery is involved. With the essure procedure I can have it done in her office. It just seemed to be the best option for us.
I am really just stressed about the permenance of the procedure I guess... But unless my husband and I lose our minds someday, we really dont want any more children, we have 5. (LOL)
Thank you again for your response, I hope you are well.
