On December 19, 2013, I made the worst decision of my life. My husband and I decided we were done having children, my doctor told me Essure was quick, painless, surgery free, permanent birth control, it sounded perfect! Some decided Togo through with me having the procedure done at 26 years old, I had just had our third baby who was premature (8 weeks prior). During insertion my dr had trouble inserting one could but continued to force it into my tube, I passed out on the table,my Bp Dropped and was very ill. My dr sent me home with Percocet and my husband basically carried my out of the office. this was a Thursday, by Friday night I was bleeding so heavily I couldn’t stand without literally hemorrhaging. I literally thought I was dying with horrible abdominal pain. My dr insisted it was normal and put me on double dose birth control pill to slow the bleeding, I went on for a couple months being miserable and bleeding. In March I went in for a check up and expressed my concerns and he scheduled me for a d&c thinking that would help clean me out. On March 17, 2014 I had a d&c. He said everything looked normal, but it wasn’t. Two weeks later he was scheduling a total vaginal hysterectomy due to pain, bleeding, and rejection of a foreign bc device. May 1, 2014 I had everything but my ovaries removed, during surgery the dr found a swollen uterus, and it was not healthy. He also nicked my bladder, causing me to have a catheter for 8 days. One coil was in my tube, the other wasn’t removed. Two weeks later a ct scan showed a coil sitting under my bladder. In June of 2014 I under went my 3 surgery to look for this device. He found many issues including organs adhering to each other and lots of scar tissue, but he did not feel comfortable removing the coil. I stopped bleeding finally but continued to have pain and bladder issues. At my 6 week check up my dr fired me. I found a new dr who was very intrigued by my story, and on September 4, 2014, I became Essure free. Four hours of surgery… The coil was in 1.5 inches of scar tissue the size of an egg… and lots of x Ray showed no traces of anything left in me. in jan 2015 I was diagnosed with interstitial cystic of the bladder. This is a permanent autoimmune disorder. I am on medication and will be forever. My bladder is attacking itself daily. some days I have to catheterize myself in order to pee. I still see pelvic pain specialists and also get injections for nerve damage. My story will never end And this is the short version. Please do not get this device, at 26 years old I have no uterus , tubes, cervix, and had bladder damage I will live with forever, I could also go into menopause at anytime. My life was forever changed.
