My name is dawn and I had the essure procedure done after I had my daughter Makayla in 2010. Its the worst decision I ever made. Two days after they placed the coils I ended up in the er with a high fever and severe abdomal pain due to the procedure. They told me that I had an infection or possibly a blood clot where the device was placed. They really couldnt tell me much cause it was just placed and they needed to insert a dye in order to see anything. They keep me in the hospital for five days. After that I continued to have real bad pain, It almost felt like I was in labor everyday. Sometimes the pain was so bad it would buckle me. A few months later i found out I was pregnant, I was going to keep the baby because my mother whom I cared for, told me on her death bed I was going to have another baby and it was going to be a boy. I couldnt keep the baby cause I found out that the device some how worked its way over to the muscle of my uterus and made that its new home. I had to have a emergency abortion. I then had to find a clinic that would do the abortion. Everyone I called said that the wouldnt do it cause of the complications I might have from the whole situation. I ended up in Newark, two hours from where I lived. After the surgery, I wasnt even in the recovery room and the amout of pain I was in brought me out of the anesthia screaming. Then The amount of blood after they keep me until in was under control. I Still have alot of pain and the only way I can get rid of it is if I have a total hysterectomy. It is now 2014 and i still have not had the surgery cause I dont have medical anymore. ive just been doing my best to deal with the pain. I really hope that this device is removed from the market so there isnt anymore problems. Ive also gained weight and havent been able to loose it. My heart goes out to all u woman that have had the essure prosedure and are having problems. To all of you thinking about having it done, a little advice, dont. You will regret it.
Thanks for hearing my story,
