The stories that I have read about Essure are not only disturbing but upseting. Back in 2008 my doctor raved about a new procedure called Essure and the benefits of having it done. At the time I was in an unhealthy marriage and felt that it would be the best option. Because there was not much down time and ‘supposedly’ not much pain associated with the procedure, I moved forward. From the moment that I had the coils implanted in my fallopian tubes I have endured tremendous pain, headaches, backaches, and bleeding. Within the last year the pain has been much worse. I get sudden and severe pains on both the left and right side of my lower abdomen that has made me drop to my knees. Ive tried taking all types of medication for the pain, yet nothing works. When I went to the hospital they stated that they could not find the reason for all the pain. It took morphine to be injected into my IV to finally aleviate some of the pain. Yet this is constant. My headaches are so severe. Ive changed doctors but that hasn’t proved to be much help. Once I bring up that Ive had the Essure procedure done and that I feel like its what caused all the problems, its quickly dismissed. As a woman you know your body and I definitly know mine. The way I feel now is not the same way I felt before the procedure was done. It has made me so depressed. Now that I am in a new relationship, we are trying to find a doctor who could possible reverse it and remove it. In my opinion doctors have their own agenda, which in the end can ultimatly change the lives of their patients.
