Adiana Permanent Contraception


When I found out about the food and drug administrations approval for this new female sterilization, I was excited. In fact, I have an appointment with my physician tomorrow, to discuss, having it done myself.

When I gave birth to my last child, I was not sure, if I was done adding to our family. To make matters worse, my uterus ruptured after an unsuccessful attempt at a VBAC. I wanted nothing more than to be out of that operating room.

I have been even less inclined to go back into it, for a tubal ligation, and my husband was not having any of the vasectomy discussion. Therefore, I just put it on the back burner, crossing my fingers that I would make it to menopause, with no surprises.

That is, until I heard about Adiana.

It is 98.4% effective at preventing pregnancy, and is virtually pain free. It is done in your doctor’s office in less than 15 minutes, and there are no incisions done for the procedure.

Most women return to their normal level of activity within a day, and most major insurance providers cover it.

In fact, in Oregon, The Oregon Health Plan for over 380,000 low income women covers the procedure. I hope that all states will eventually follow. The cost without coverage can be up to $3000.

You must take a pregnancy test prior to rule out pregnancy, and the procedure must be performed during the first half of your menstrual cycle, to avoid the risk you will become pregnant, before the procedure. It is not reversible, so if you are unsure, this is not the best option for you.

The doctor uses a medical device, which emits a low level radio frequency into each fallopian tube. A tiny piece of medical grade silicone, about the size of an uncooked grain of rice, is then placed in each tube.

Your body then naturally forms scar tissue around the silicone, and blocks off the fallopian tubes, preventing eggs from traveling to the uterus for fertilization.

There is no metal device of any kind left inside your body, preventing metal allergies, and there are no hormones, so your menstrual cycle should remain the same as it was before the procedure.

Three months after the procedure, the Adiana HSG confirmation test is performed, to be certain your tubes are completely blocked.

If you do not have the test done, there is no way of knowing for sure, if your tubes have completely closed and you run the risk of becoming pregnant.

As with any permanent birth control procedure, if you do become pregnant, it is most likely to be an ectopic pregnancy. The embryo grows in the fallopian tube.

Ectopic pregnancies are very dangerous and life threatening, which is why the test performed three months after the procedure is so important. If your period is more than five days late or you have any suspicions that you could be pregnant, contact your doctor immediately.

The rare risks and complications include, incorrect plug placement, making a second procedure necessary.
In addition, albeit very rare the uterus could be injured during the procedure requiring surgery. Other rare risks are fluid build up in the bloodstream, pelvic or back pain, and infection.

The effectiveness of this form of permanent birth control was collected from three years of clinical data.

If I have the procedure, I will let you know how it goes, and for more information about Adiana, I have included link below.
