4yrs ago after having my daughter Emma . I decided to get a permanent birth control that was safe. I chose Essure. I went to my Dr’s office and got it done. I had terrible cramps and bleeding for weeks. I finally went to get it checked after calling dr several times. And they did Xrays to find out that one of my essure coils was lost. I had to surgically have it removed and have a tubal ligation. The whole process was painful and makes me cry still. I have shadow pains often.
