My Adiana sterilization procedure


Itís been over a year since I wrote an article on what information I had learned about the Adiana sterilization procedure. The info I had gained was so inspiring, I set an appointment with my OB/GYN to discuss my options.

For the most part, everything I had read was repeated by my physician. I went ahead and scheduled the surgery.

Itís almost been a year since I had it done, and I have mixed results.

I was admitted to the hospital for a same day outpatient procedure. It could not have been easier or gone more smoothly. I got an IV, I went to sleep, and in no time at all (actually about 30 minutes) I was in recovery waking up and drinking soda.

Within a few hours of arriving, I was going home with minor cramping and bleeding. Other than taking it easy and no heavy lifting, I was my normal self almost instantly. I was pleased with the easy recovery.

I remained on my birth control pill over the next 3 months. You have to have an HSG test. A hysterosalpingogram is an X-ray that examines the inside of uterus and fallopian tubes with dye. The purpose of the test in this case, is to make sure there is no opening in the tube after the Adiana was placed and scar tissue has formed.

For me, the HSG test was incredibly painful. My doctor explained that the HSG test is often used in determining if a womanís fallopian tubes are blocked and causing infertility. A considerable amount of pressure is used to distribute the dye through the uterus and into the tubes.

Although such a high pressure isnít needed in the cases of Adiana patients, doctors use to performing it for infertile women sometimes donít reduce the pressure used. That was what happened in my case. It was so uncomfortable that I swore I would not do it again. Iíve had three very large babies in my lifetime. I am no stranger to pain.

If you knew my real life, you would know what I am about to tell you was inevitable for me. I can be in the lowest percentile for risk, yet it will befall me. The test results werenít great. It looked like there was some seepage of dye in my left tube. I cried. I cried a lot.

I was so hopeful. Everything besides that awful x ray went so well. I waited so long.

Statistics show that of those who do not have complete blockage after 3 months post procedure, seventy five percent have full blockage after nine months. So I continued on the birth control pill.

At the nine month mark, I stopped taking the pill. I did not have the retest done. As much of a risk as it is, I refuse to go through the HSG test again. Itís been two months and so far so good.

I am confident I canít be that unlucky. Overall, I think the experience was a positive one. If they can find a way around the HSG test, I would consider it almost perfect.
