At the age of 27 , year 2005 I had this procedure done through my gynocologist. After my second childs birth, we decided not to have any more children. The doctor suggested essure and was proud to say that essure was the best among the rest. Ofcourse , it is not. I was a very healthy female. I never wore earrings or any body jewelry that contained metal from my childhood. I am severly allergic to metal containing nickel. I wasn’t warned about the side effects of essure and also wasnt even aware that it contained nickel. Apart from the nickel problems, the doctor didn’t let me know about the horrible migrations of the essure coils (devices). I suffered many problems after this essure implantation. My digestion began to fail. I started back problems. Horrible pain during periods. My knees started hurting. I cant even walk. I became weaker day by day. I started to eat a lot so that i would have energy. It didnt help. I did lot of exercises , watched my diet. Didnt help. I began to bloat like a balloon and suffered lot of pain. I had done too many ultrasounds and they even started doubting whether i developed cancer. But noone doubted ESSURE . Not even me. Now it is 2014. I slowly became weaker and weaker almost one day i felt I am going to die. I have 2 beautiful daughters ages 10 and 8 . I was wondering what will happen to them. Then we decided to see a holistic health practitioner. My periods are becoming worse and worse and my back pain has reached to a point where i cant move. My husband has to take time off from work to take care of me and my kids. How horrible? I used to paint. Now i havent even touched my paint brush for almost 9 years now after EHELL. I cant bend , lift , climb stairs etc., If I do sometimes like I always do when friends or family visit , it pains as though I am going to die. My ultrasound and ct scan revealed that my coils have migrated to my uterus and is in the endometrium. Now i am learning all medical terms. Now i am 35 and next step would be to take an xray and God knows what the doctor is going to do next. So whoever is reading this, please never ever get ESSURE inside your body and please spread the news and save all women from this hell. It will destroy your life. You will be in constant pain always. BEWARE OF ESSURE.
