I am 27 years old, after 3 pregnancies and 3 babies via c-section I was told on the operating table that due to scar tissure I could never get pregnant again or I would most likely bleed out resulting in death. I was devastated because this was my third baby boy and I wanted to try again for a baby girl. A few weeks after birth my OBGYN offered me different types of sterilization. My OBGYN assured me that the best option was the Essure Procedure. He explained to me that it was a painless in office procedure, he would give me cytotec to insert the night before to soften my cervix, that he would give me a vallium to take once I arrived at the office and I would be good to go the next day. I arrived at his office for my scheduled Essure Procedure appointment on Feburary 26th, 2014. As I layed on the table waiting for him to begin the procedure I was very nervous and upset knowing that this was the end for me, no more babies. I was in tears prior to getting on the table and he reminded me that this was my best and only option to avoid a pregnancy and the possibliity of death. I asked my OBGYN if he was going to give me the vallium that he told me he would, he replied, ‘Oh you don’t need it. You’re going to be fine!’ As he started the procedure I felt a burning pain (which was my cervix strething, I would assume). Then as he started to insert the coil and spray fluid in my tubes I started bawling and shaking and breathing heavily. My Husband kept saying, are you okay whats wrong? I said I’M IN PAIN!! THIS HURTS SO BAD!! I could no longer talk, the pain was so intense. Now remember, we were under the impression that this was painless. My Husband was in shock and I was in too much pain to be in shock. My OBGYN had a tough time getting one of the coils in. I was in pure agony during the entire procedure. After he was finished my OBGYN asked me if I was okay, I told him I was not okay and that it hurt very bad! He left the room to try to find me a percocet and vallium. Once he left I told my Husband that this was worse than c-section recovery pain. My Dr. came back in and told me that he didnt have any in the office and sent my Husband to pick up a prescription of vallium. My OBGYN had me lay in another room until I felt okay to leave. I left and slept for about 22 hours on the vallium. I woke up the next day still in pain, but by far not as much pain as I had the day before. My pain stayed for a couple days, gradually getting better with pain every few days. I bled like crazy for 2 weeks after the procedure even though I had just got off of my period 2 days before having the Essure Procedure done. I began having nausea every day. I would have times throughout the day that I would feel pain on both side of my lower abdomen. That went on for a while. Now, almost 3 months later, for the past week/week and a half, I am in constant pain! No matter what side I lay on, if I lay on my side I get a sharp poking or stabbing pain on that side in the lower abdominal region. I have the worst headaches accompanied by dizziness and feeling as though I am going to pass out. I thought that pain after the procedure was normal, but last night after realizing how long it’s been that I have been in constant all day pain, I decided to google search ‘pain on both sides after Essure Procedure’. I came across many websites with women describing my exact pain. I knew then that this was not normal…. because today is a Saturday I am going to the E.R. to make sure that the coils are not poking through something or LOST in a spot they shouldn’t be and hopefully they give me something for pain relief because I cannot take it anymore. I am miserable, I don’t even want to leave my house because of the constant pain. I haven’t reached out to my Dr. prior to this because I honestly was mad at him for making me feel like a crazy person during my procedure and not believing that I was in as much pain as I was. I love my OBGYN to death and as soon as the office opens on Tuesday I am making an appointment to get checked with him. After reading all of these stories I am so scared that this may end in the result of having to get a hystorectomy. I am hoping that there is another option to rid the pain for good as I do not want a hystorectomy! Please, if you are a woman considering this procedure, explore other options. This is the worst decision I have ever made, though I am hoping for a successful, pain free outcome!
