I had my son in 2007, after six pregnancies, and three live births I was told by my doctor about Essure. I went 6 week after my son was born and had the Essure implants put in, in my doctors office. They had a problem putting one of them in because one of my tubes was not straight enough. I was told after testing that they had ‘taken’ and my periods should lighten up. Well I still had heavy bleeding and big clots twice a month for a week straight. One week on my period one week off. I had increased pain due to my periods and my implants. In 2011 I was sent back to the doctor who put the implants in I was tested for Endometriosis which came back negative, I also had an ultrasound and it showed that I had numerious ovarian cysts and I also had a fibriod in my uterius. In October 2012 right after my 34th birthday, I had to have a full hystorectomy, including reconstructive surgery, but leaving my overies. I had one or two cysts drained from my overy, I also had many unfertilized eggs on the out side of my tubes. I got into a car accident 9-4-13 and when x-rays were taken they found a piece of metal right below my overy. I called and questioned the doctor and as told it probely broke threw the tube when they were taken them out. I had my cervic, uterious, tubes taken out, and had complications from the surgery and the healing time was 2 months longer than what I was told. In short the only thing I know as truth is what I have on x-ray and what I was verbally told after my surgery. There was nothing in the operating notes that I had a heart attack. I did find out that during the surgery I lost so much blood it made me severly anemic. It had been over a year and I still don’t know what or why I developed all these problems and why it took so long for my doctors to do anything about it after I was complaining about the bleeding and the pain. My procedure was done in Massachusetts. I personally wouldn’t advise anyone to go threw with this unless you want to have a hystorectomy.
