After the surprise pregnancy and birth of our seventh child my do for pushed the essure procedure for me as a permant solution. We were very done having kids. I took the large amount of drugs requires to have the coils inserted. I got sick from them, nothing major but yuck. After waiting the requires 3 months I had the confirmation test. It showed a 100% blockage. No more babies I was told. dont worry. As I type this I am now nursing my eighth baby. I got pregnant even though I was told it could not happen! I love all my kids to death, but this is NOT what we wanted. Because of this last pregnancy my uterus had too much stretching and almost ruptured. Thank God we were both ok, but we were both In Danger of dying. Thank God I had a planned c-section. I hate to think what would have happened if I had labored. The do for that performed my section removed my Fallopian tubes. They could not remove the coils. I wish they had taken everything as I don’t need it any more. The essure was presented to me as completely safe and harmless. Although I have not had the major side effects as some, I was never told of the possible side effects. Overall I am very disappointed. I would have NEVER put myself through having this done if I had know what could happen, or that after a 100% blockage a conception could still happen.
