After implantation of the Adiana system, an estimated 1 to 2 out of 100 women will get pregnant. If you do conceive after having the Adiana system implanted, there's a higher chance that the pregnancy will be ectopic — when the fertilized egg implants outside the uterus, usually in a fallopian tube. However, because pregnancy after sterilization is rare, the overall risk of ectopic pregnancy is lower than that of the general population.

The Adiana system doesn't offer protection from sexually transmitted infections.

Risks associated with the Adiana system include:

  • Infection
  • Perforation of the uterus or fallopian tubes
  • Tubal blockage occurring on only one side
