In brief: Irreversible

Essure is permanent birth control, and it is very good at that job.
In order to "reverse" it, it will require an invasive surgery callled a cornual resection. This has no proven success rate for subsequent pregnancy although some have published good outcomes. That surgery may also increase ectopic risk. Best to investigate ivf in these cases. In vitro fertilization is effective after essure.

In brief: Yes, Options Exist

Why do you want your essure removed? If causing rare problem, such as pain, then this can be accomplished laparoscopically (this will not restore fertility).
If you desire pregnancy, then speak with infertility specialist about leaving essure implants in place and proceeding with in-vitro fertilization (ivf).

In brief: Yes

I would recommend coming back to see your dr. To discuss.
There are surgical techniques that he or another doctor in the office can offer to try and reverse the essure. Another option is to go to an infertility clinic to discuss in vitro. Unfortunately, all of these options are not usually covered by insurance.
