    My ex got the snip and he was in so much pain for days I felt horrible but my husband says he will get the snip as it is a less evasive surgery and he knows he only wants kids with me so even if we broke up he said he would have it done on the off chance he ever moves on

    The snip for us!!
    Dh was always worried about the pain factor ect

    One time I told him I went through pain having our DD, so its only fair when the time comes he can go through a little bit of discomfort
    He didn't really know what to say back to that

    Turns out he has a condition called Varicocele and will need day surgery to remove varicose veins from his sperm cord sometime in the future because as time goes by they become bigger and more painful, many men have it but unfortunately for him they have gotten more and more painful and larger as time passes.
    He can get the Snip when they remove the veins, and removing the veins is a very easy procedure we have been told.

    I had a c-section with my dd, and I'm going into have a laparoscopy & Hysteroscopy soon, I'm also having a coloscopy on my cervix.
    There is no way in the world I'm adding another procedure like tubal ligation on top of all that
    I think my poor reproductive system had been through enough

    DH got the snip. My mum suffered quite a few symptoms of post tubal ligation syndrome and there's no way on earth I was risking that.

    The Essure and Adiana procedures
    Essure and Adiana are female sterilisation procedures that are less invasive than other methods. Both involve putting a tiny, flexible device (micro-insert) into each fallopian tube. The Essure device is a tiny coil of titanium and the Adiana device is small silicone plug about the size of a grain of rice. They make the body grow scar tissue around the inserts, blocking the fallopian tubes.

    Some facts about the procedure include:
    A gynaecologist who has had specialised further training can perform the procedure.
    General anaesthetic isn’t needed, but can be used.
    A flexible device called a hysteroscope is inserted through the cervix (entrance to the womb) and threaded along a fallopian tube. Once the hysteroscope is in place, the micro-insert is released. This is then repeated for the other fallopian tube.
    The procedure usually takes less than 30 minutes.
    Essure and Adiana are more than 99 per cent effective in preventing pregnancy.
    The "Essure" sounds like what I referred to as the "stop device" in my previous post.
