Essure: At age 46 i would suggest essure. I recommend essure over either of the 2 options you are using. It is a simple office procedure that can be done with no incisions and no recovery. In experienced hands it can be done in less than a minute under local anesthesia. It has the highest success rate and complication rate of any method.
