I had the Essure procedure done in 2008. I was a divorced single mother of 2 teenagers. I was told that the procedure went well, tubes were blocked and i could not have children. In 2011, I found out I was pregnant with my now 2.5 year old son. I didn’t realize i was pregnant until I was about 3.5 months. I was ill and my doctor checked for everything because I just knew there was no way i could be pregnant. My doctor said the Essure procedure is only 99.7% effective and I fell into the .3%.
Sadly, when i went for my first appt after finding out i was pregnant; the doctor tried to sell me on getting the Essure procedure because it was a permanent way to sterilize yourself once your family was complete. Imagine her face when i told her and everyone in the waiting room that i had the essure procedure and it did not work.
After my son was born I decided to get my tubes tied. The Essure procedure was very easy and i didn’t have any complications. It just didn’t work for me.
