Tubal Ligation Results
Most women recover from the laparoscopic procedure with no problems. There are no tests required to confirm that you are now sterile (that is, unable to become pregnant) after a laparoscopic procedure.
During the first 3 months after the Essure or Adiana procedure, you must use another form of birth control. At the 3-month point, you must undergo a final X-ray procedure in which dye is placed in your uterus and an X-ray is taken to confirm that the device is in place.
