Hello my name is Amanda and I live in Michigan. I had the essure put in about 3 yrs ago about 4 months after i had given birth to my second child. I didnt want to have anymore children as some issues with the state came up but anyways I went in to the doctors that deliveried my children and talked to them about having my tubes tied and all that good stuff. They refered me to another doctor and that doctor told me that he would perfer to put the essure in because of it being safer or whatever. I told him no I just want my tubes cut ties and burned he refused to comply with my wishes so i was forced into getting the implants. I didnt have any pain or anything like that but then recently I had truma to my stomach and the coil dislodged i dont know how but it did and I didnt know it til it was too late. I went to walmart and bought a pregnancy test cause of me missing my menstral cycle and that test came back positive so i went to a service that we have here where i live at and had them do a pregnancy test and that one came back positive so i called an ob doctor the same ones that have delivered my 2 children and made an appointment to be seen cause i wanted to know for sure if i was or if it was default testing or what not so they scheduled an ultrasound and sure enough i was pregnant and now i sit here almost 6 months pregnant with my 3rd child tyring to get an attorney that can handle this but of course not cause of some stupid law. So i am stuck here pregnant and there is nothing i can do about having the doctor that did the surgry sued or what ever. I am very unhappy with the way I have been treated as a mother and a patient. I would not recomined this essure to nobody that is wanting to get fixed. I am high risk because when the doctors did the ultrasound they discovered that one of the coils was next to the baby. But thank the good lord above that the baby is doing good and growing.
