Very little: If you are having the essure the recovery is rapid with minimal to no post op pain. With the laparoscopy you can expect pain from the incision and the gas with a down time of about 2 days. With both procedure you can expect some temporary vaginal bleeding.

U shoudl feel happy : And relieved that you cannot get pregnant, u need to ask the doc who does your tubal because it depends how it was done, I do in office essure tubals, easy takes 5 minutes minimal discomfort during and after only miss a few hrs of work, u are awake for the procedure, if your doc does laparoscopic tubal , will be in a lot of pain for a few days and will miss 2-7 days of work and u are put under.
