I got the Essure done in January of 2012. I tried to research the product but found nothing negative. My doctor recommended it because it was quick and I was concerned about being unable to function normally for 6 weeks.
I am a mother of four children so my husband and I are Done having babies. After having the procedure I seemed to be ok. I experienced things I did not relate to Essure until now. After the three month I went in for them to check and my coils were in place and the dye test went well. I began experiencing severe stomach pains and chest pains. My doctor ran several tests sent me to a cardiologist and a gastroenterologist. I am nauseous every day, I bleed for four to six weeks at a time then go several without or light spotting. My cramping is almost unbearable some days along with back pain.
Sex is often painful and my overall sex drive is very low. I have days when I am so tired I can not function and on top of that I now worry I am going to end up pregnant. I have not asked my provider to take them out yet because we are in route to transfer and secretly I was hoping they would recall them before I had to go through the emotional abuse these other woman have gone through from doctors and insurance companies. I pray to have these removed but I worry that my stomach pain is because they have pierced another body part.
