How long will it take to heal after sterilization?
updated over 1 year ago

If you have a laparoscopy, you may be sore for a few days. The incisions are small, but you still may take a couple weeks to heal completely. If you have an Essure, you should feel back to normal in a day or 2 since there are no incisions (but don’t forget, it does take the Essure 3 months to be effective so use a back-up method until). Essure will no longer be sold after the end of 2018. Find out more here.
