How much would sterilisation via Essure cost me? Has anyone had it done?

Would really like to stop using contraception as we definitely don't want more children, but I don't want the risk of major surgery. Essure seems like a good option but I don't know anything about private healthcare so this is a new world to me - I assume I couldn't get it on the NHS.

Any comments appreciated.

I think you can get it done on the NHS but it probably depends on your NHS trust as to whether it's available in your area so you should talk to your GP about it. I think it costs about £3,000 in the Cadogan Clinic in Knightsbridge (so probably cheaper elsewhere).

Thanks... that's something to start with. I thought it was unlikely to be available on the NHS as I have no medical need for it, but perhaps it's best to start by discussing with the GP anyway.
