"Essure" has been marketed in the UK as a method of hysteroscopic sterilisation, but has recently been withdrawn form the UK market. It has been in use at Arrowe Park Hospital since 2013 and we have performed over 200 procedures prior to withdrawal. We will present a joint case report of three patients who complained of pain following "essure" insertion. In all 3 cases, symptoms did not improve with conservative measures and all three patients subsequently underwent laparoscopic bilateral salpingectomy and removal of devices. In all 3 cases, symptoms improved. Conclusion - "Essure" hysteroscopic sterilisation can be associated with subsequent pain in a small number of patients which may improve with bilateral salpingectomy and removal of the devices.
