Ok, so I am not telling *my* story, but my baby sisters story, Jessica. She is young, in her 20’s. After her 4th child she wanted a tubal. The doctor told her about Essure and how much easier it would be. The doctor did not even ASK her if she had an allergy to NICKEL…Well she does. A slight one, but she cant wear cheap earrings due to the fact. And Essure is MADE of nickel, so wouldnt make a person think that it would have an effect on a person?? Oh well….Essure was not a miracle for her. First off, during the proceedure the doctor MISFIRED the guns…so they thought. So they fired AGAIN….After her proceedure, she was told that they accidentally put 2 springs in each of her fallopian tubes. But they let her know it would be OK…maybe even BETTER.
She started having CRAMPS and CONSTANT BLEEDING. And when I say CONSTANT bleeding, I mean it. A period nearly everyday. Sex with her husband=BLEEDING. Pap smear=BLEEDING. She would bleed nearly EVERYDAY. And she would bleed THRU a tampon AND a PAD. One day I went on a road trip with her…she was wearing a tampon and a pad…she got out to pump gas (she was wearing my skirt, btw) and she started bleeding ON THE GROUND…she had to go to the bathroom and wash her LEGS and SHOES and spots of blood on my skirt!
She told me, cried to me, many times how she would BLEED at WORK….she had to always bring a CHANGE of CLOTHES with her to work. She would bleed thru all her protection onto her work CHAIR. She would have to walk sideways thru the work halls so that no one would SEE her blood on her pants. HOW EMBARRASSING! She went thru this for 3-4 YEARS. (cramping, bloating, weight gain, excessive bleeding, irritability etc….)
She gets pap smears, they come out ‘normal’. One doctor told her she had an STD…and gave her drugs for it and caused huge problems in her MARRIAGE….(She thought her husband had CHEATED on her, otherwise HOW did she have this STD?? right?). 6 months later…she is FAINTING from exhaustion and blood loss. She finally starts to lose weight too. (Yup, you know where this story is going). She goes to see ANOTHER doctor…knowing that something is not RIGHT….losing that much blood to the point of FAINTING is not right!
The new doctor tells her she has a HUGE FIBROID, prolasped uterus, needs to do an EMERGENCY HYSTORECTOMY immediatly. So she gets a hystorectomy at 28 years old!! Then finds out the ‘FIBROID’ was not so, it was CANCER. And that she NEVER had an STD…but it was the CANCER TUMOR the size of a GRAPEFRUIT that was secreting fluids.
So the doc said the cancer tumor was around 3YEARS OLD. Nearly the exact age of her ESSURE springs. Sure…everyone says ‘We dont know what causes cancer…blah blah blah….’. I dont buy it. There was also a Swedish research that said 90% of women who got the COPPER IUD and used a CELL phone daily got UTERINE CANCER….because the METAL acted like an ANTENNA in their uterus, causing unnatural FREQUENCIES in their uterus. These Essure springs ARE made of METAL. And my baby sister DOES use a cell phone daily…even puts it in her pocket or lap daily. Do I think Essure springs caused her CANCER? YES. She just went thru all this last month. Very fresh. And now she has to start radiation (which we KNOW causes cancer!!!) and chemotherapy this month. The cancer had spread to her lymph nodes by her uterus also. But she has a great chance of survival…it did not spread anywhere else.
Be careful women. Do NOT put artifical things in your BODY.
