I am 33 a mother of 6. I had Essure put in, in 2010 after my 6th child was born I was told by Dr that this was my only option, that’s it’s safe and effective, not long after Essure I started having pain and swelling my Dr said I had a uti however he never tested for a uti. When I asked about the Essure he said the test showed they are functional. I went to him a few times in a 2 year period each and every time I was treated for a uti however no testes we ran to prove a uti. I have been seeing that ob my entire life, his father was the very first ob I ever seen he did my partial ovariectomy at 14 I trusted this Dr very much, I then began to see another ob who diagnosed me with Endometriosis he said it couldn’t be from Essure so for another to years I had this pain, some days I was ok but in the matter of seconds it came on stronger than ever and I would drop to my knees, I couldn’t stand long enough to make a meal for my kids most of the time I had to pay a babysitter while I was home just to take of the kids I couldn’t even hold my baby. For a few years I suffered from depression anxiety severe fatigue I was so tired but I couldn’t sleep because of the pain, I lost so many jobs because most of the time I couldn’t stand I would crawl through my house tying to take care of my kids all the while they are watching this. In 2009 when I had a c-section with my second set of twins the Dr put In the.clips which I did not consent for few months later I was pregnant with my third set of twins I was shocked I thought I had a hysterectomy so how was I pregnant I lost one baby a few weeks in uterus so when the Dr put in my Essure I later learned he.also left the.clips he just tightened them. In January 2015 I found another ob she.is the.fourth my first meeting with her I told her about my pain and the Essure and.clips March 17 I finally had my hysterectomy I feel great. But all those years lost. I’ll never get that back and neither will my kids.
