Hi my name is Brandy and i am 36 yrs old. Last year i went to my doctor and talked to him about having a tubal done because i alreadu have 4 children. I told him i was scared to be put to sleeep and he said that they have a new birth control called Essure. He told me what it was and how it works. I was pleased to hear that it does the same as a tubal without going under. I made the appointment and had the procedure done. 3 months later at my check up i told him that i was having a poking feeling on the left side like a pin poke. He did a screening and injected dye and seen that the Essure and perferated a hole in my left fallopian tube. I went in for surgery in Aug. 2012 to have it removed. I learned after my surgey that he did not remove it like i was told because he could not find it so he cut and burned my left tube. Ever since i have been having a shrap burning pain on the left side right around my menstural cycle. It would last for a few days. This went on for a while and now i get the same pain during and after my menstural. I went to the doctor today( 11-2-2013) because of the pain and he said that he would have to do an x ray and an ultra sound to see where the Essure is. I am very concerned about a foreign objcet just cruising around in my body. This product should be taken off the market and there should be a law suit for all us women who had to indure such pain and complications. I dont have a good sex life with my husband because sometimes it hurts on the left side. If there are other women out there like me please post your story too so that something can be done about this.
