I had Essure done May of 2009. I am 3 wks late. I took 3 home pregnancy test but have had a negative result. Is there another explanation for this?

I had Essure done May of 2009. I am 3 wks late. I took 3 home pregnancy test but have had a negative result. Is there another explanation for this?

A few possibilities: Your 2009 hysteroscopic Essure tubal occlusion procedure is not likely to be the cause of a change in your cycles. If you believe your negative pregnancy tests, there is a very good possibility that the 3 week delay is a temporary alteration in your ovulation due to some pituitary-hypotalamic-ovarian hormonal changes that will resolve spontaneously in 2 to 3 months.If not, consult your gyn-endo. ...Read more

Essure & novasure performed concurrently in 8/08.  began having regular menses again in 11/2013 should I be worried about procedure failure/pregnancy?

Xray: Did you have the 3 month post Essure confirmation test done after the procedure? This is very important to confirm that Essure successfully sealed the fallopian tubes to prevent pregnancy. Not everyone achieves a complete cessation of periods forever after an endometrial ablation. 5 years of no periods 2008-2013 is pretty good. ...Read more

The : The essure is a very effective means of birth control, but as this is a change for you it would be reasonable to take a pregnancy test to be sure.
