Essure Removal Procedure in Dayton, OH

Essure Removal at Huey & Weprin Ob/Gyn

What is Essure removal surgery?

Essure is a method of permanent birth control that involves one of our doctors placing special devices, called Essure coils, in your fallopian tubes. Over time, a barrier develops around the coils, blocking your tubes. Essure removal is a procedure in which our doctors remove the Essure coils.

Why is Essure removal performed?

Essure removal may be recommended if you are experiencing side effects or complications from your Essure device. Possible side effects from your Essure device may include:

  • Infections
  • Severe pelvic pain
  • Heavy periods
  • Pain during sex
  • Headaches
  • Extreme fatigue

If you are experiencing any of these side effects, contact our doctors immediately. An Essure device is easier to remove within the first three months of the initial procedure.

What are the benefits of Essure removal?

The primary benefit of Essure removal is that you may longer experience the negative side effects caused by the Essure device.

What does Essure removal involve?

Essure removal involves our doctors creating a small hole in each fallopian tube, removing the Essure coils, and closing up the incisions. The procedure typically takes about an hour to perform, during which you will be under general anesthesia. You may also choose to undergo a hysterectomy to remove the Essure device.

Can you get pregnant after Essure removal?

Removing an Essure device will not help you regain your ability to become pregnant. If you are looking to remove your Essure to become pregnant, Essure reversal is recommended instead.

What can I expect after getting Essure removed?

After an Essure removal procedure, recovery time will vary based on several factors, including how long you had the device implanted prior to removal, as well as the method of device removal. Following surgery, some patients may experience symptom relief within days. For others, symptoms may return after surgery. If you have a hysterectomy for Essure removal, recovery may take several weeks.
