I’m 28 now I had the essure done when i was 24, I have had nothing but problems with this procedure. The doctor who placed the essure said that the pain I was having after the essure was placed in me was not from the essure and it was normal especially after having my son a month before having the essure done. I’ve seen 3- 4 different doctors in the last 4 years and they all said that its time for a hysterectomy. The first time I was told that I should have a hysterectomy I was only 26. I have had the pain for so long that its just normal now. I REFUSE to have a hysterectomy so I have looked in to other options and I have found others such as removal of the essure and tubal reversal options but its coming up with the money to have the procedure performed. I have talked to some people who have had there essure reversed and they said they feel so much better after the essure is out but the Doctors here in Colorado look at me like im crazy when I tell them its possible. I have also called essure after I had the essure done, I asked them if I should have been tested for anything before I had it done and they said Yes. The doctor who placed the essure did no testing, I was not informed about any possible side effects. People I don’t even know ask me if I’m pregnant, as i have gained weight and have a constant feeling of bloating, my stomach gets hard as a rock and the constant pain is overwhelming enough to cause me to loose time at work and with my family.
