Essure Procedure

Pros and cons, side effects, stories and concerns about Essure




Essure Procedure

I started this website for women who have had the Essure Procedure so they could share their stories and concerns about Essure. I believe that collectively we are strong voices that can create change and not only help ourselves but educate and share our stories so that we can help others find the help and comfort they need.


I have been amazed at the number of women who have written to me with their stories and the serious medical issues they are having due to the Essure implant. Stories from debilitating headaches, nausea, allergic response to the nickel the device is made of, hysterectomies, colon perforation due to device moving, to scans that cannot even find where the device has gone to pregnancy and the women were told that they could not get pregnant yet none of the women were told of the serious side effects.

It is a woman’s right to decide for herself if she wants a certain form of birth control but when they are NOT told of the devastating side effects, well that isn’t right.

Please share your story here so that women with problems from Essure know that they are not alone. We hope that together we can find comfort, create awareness around this issue, help those who are having problems and create a movement to get this product off the market and find a remedy for those who have been harmed.

    Hi Cassandra! Unfortunately, you are one of the many women who suffer from the side effects of the eHELL coils. Partial or full hysterectomy is recommended to remove the eHELL coils. Read other stories, there are some doctors who are willing to help.

  2. Janie says:

    I have had so many issues lately that I think are caused by the Essure coils. I really feel like a hypochondriac, seriously. When I tell my doctor, she totally dismisses. I have always been very self aware when it comes to my body and I know something is off. Something is way off, Ive never been this unhealthy in my life. Bad procedure to have.

  3. Jen Garcia says:

    I have all same symptoms you described and no answers for years and many ER visits one after another no answers. How do i know if this is the issue?

  4. Summer Dunn says:

    I had Essure done July of 2010. My periods starting getting closer together and heavier. I am now having clots the size of a golf ball. Terrible! I went to the doctor last week and she said my uterus is swollen and my cervix is really low. Sex is painful and I look like I’m 4 months pregnant. Another issue I have is I can’t pass gas a lot of times and it is very painful. Does anyone else have these issues?
