My name is Alexis Gibson and I have had a terrible experience with the Essure coils. I was never told what could possibly happen from my doctor. I have had the essure for almost three years now and I am only 25. I feel I should have been told that this procedure was not reversable. I just viewed it as something that could be undone, like a normal tubal ligation. Well…. I was so wrong. I may have been young and not very wise, but my doctor should have told me that at the young age of 22, I might change my mind and want more kids. I have had major depression because of this. I feel that the patient is entitled to know as much as possible about a procedure that is going to be done to them. Now that i am out of college and have a very good job and my kids are not so little ( they were 23 months apart), I really feel like I am actually ready for another baby. I was never financially prepared before now. Not only the want for another child, but I also have excruciating pain on my right and left side. I know this is from the essure coils. The pain is sharp and stabbing; often causing me to burst out in tears. I just hope we can get the truth to all the patients and have doctors to be required to go into EXTREME detail before permanantly sterilizing women… especially women in their low twenties. Thanks for giving me the chance to share my story.
