I had Essure implanted November 2012. The docs will say it’s non surgical, it’s not I was put under. The brochure said it had Nickel in it, I asked my doc about that since I have a nickel allergy. He told me it wouldn’t effect me and that this was totally safe. Shortly after the Essure was implanted I started bleeding between periods. I asked my new ob about it and she said my body was trying to adjust. This went on for over a year. I also experienced sever bloating on my abdominal area. The bloating was so bad that I could not move. I had to wait for it to subside. Sex is very painful, it often results in sharp pains in my lower abdomen and then sever bloating afterwards. Then I started with an aching pain in my wrist. This resulted in my getting a steroid shot in my wrist. All of these this never happened prior to Essure. In 2014 I made countless visits to various docs about my bleeding in between periods, pain during intercourse, and my wrist pain. Never did I connect the dots to Essure. In March 2015 I had Essure removed by having my stomach cut open and having my fallopian tubes removed with the coils in tact. The inflammation and wrist pain was gone the very next day after surgery. My other symptoms I have not experienced them as of yet, however I am sure they are gone for good. This device that they claim is so sage robbed me of a normal life for 2 years and 4.5 months. Although I am in pain from the recovery of my surgery I still feel better than I did before having Essure removed.
