I had the essure procedure on August 20th 2014, shortly after my last baby was born. I don’t want anymore children and couldn’t afford anymore so I opt for the essure as my doctor was able to get grants to make I free for me and it was supposed to be quick and easy and virtually painless according to the essure website. After taking the pain med and a shot to help with uterine cramps the doctor opened my cervix and began the procedure. The left coil went in without any issues, the right coil bent as he was trying to place it. He took the right one out and replaced I with a new coil. I was cramping so bad and he had to use this scraper/grabber looking tool to clear parts of my uterus so he could see. The whole procedure ended up taking longer than expected and I bled for a month straight. He told me to take bc pills and come back in three months for the confirmation test. I came back Nov 20th 2014 thinking I was going to have the x-ray with dye test done as the website said you’re supposed to have. They took me into the ultrasound room instead. When I mentioned the xray test to the doctor he informed me that the radiologist who did the xray for the other women told him it’s not necessary as long as the coils still have good placement on the ultrasound. He looked at each coils placement on the ultrasound left was fine right was hanging out more into my uterus but he said they looked good that the procedure worked. Told me it’s up to me if I want the dye test done. I told him if he didn’t think it was medically necessary then no because that’s more pain to go through. He assured me everything was fine told me to take the rest of the bc pills I was on (which was only the last week) and then I could have unprotected sex. Needless to say I followed his orders and now I’m 5 weeks pregnant with a confirmation blood test and ultrasound. No I’m forced to make a decision I never thought I’d have to make. I already put in my complaint with the FDA and I intend to take this a lot further. I shouldn’t be in this predicament. I feel cheated, confused, angry… I would have never gotten this procedure done with what I know now.
