Hello, My name is Casey. I had the Essure done a few years back and I was told that it was more effective and less painful then my husband getting a vasectimy. I was amazed when I woke up from anisticia how badly I hurt. I was even more amazed that weeks later I was still in severe pain. 3 months later I was in tears in the waiting room waiting to get the die test done. The Doctor was running behind and after a 4 hour wait I was told to reschedual. I was annoyed but so relieved. The thought of that Doctor getting her hands on me again terrified me. My husband was so upset by how scared I was he told me to not even go back. 18 months later we discovered that we were pregnant with our 4th baby. When I went to have the ultrasound done to confirm pregnancy I was told that the coils in my tubes could not be seen. I was hoping with pregnancy that the pain I had felt for over a year would subside during regnancy, I was wrong. It has been 4 years now and my insides still hurt. My daughter was born prematurly and spent the first 2 weeks in the NICU. Thank God she is home now and a very happy baby. I love her sooooo much and am blessed to have her. We were not finaincaily ready for anather child and most certainly not ready for NICU bills! And I was not ready to spend the rest of my life in pain. I would not recoment this to anyone! I am not in crippling pain containly but this is not what I signed up for. I feel the Doctor flat out lied to me just to get paid with no regard to my health. I am no cry baby by any means and can typicaly handle discomfort well but this has gone beyond discomfort and has been present now for years! Not cool!
