I had the procedure done in 2008. My experience was excellent, still is. Everything was explained up front, my doctor educated me so I could make an informed decision. I also did plenty of my own research. I went in, had minimal discomfort, drove home as a passenger to pick up kids and take them to park day with our homeschool group. Had mild cramping the rest of the day that wasn’t any worse than my menstrual cramps. 90 days later had my verification xray and was given the all clear.
I’ve been reading the experiences the ladies who had unfortunate things happen. Mostly I see doctors being responsible for what’s happened, or no ones fault at all. Nothing is EVER without risk and nothing is 100% Anyone who believes otherwise is being unrealistic and unreasonable. I was told there was still a chance of becoming pregnant, that it would be ectopic if it happened, if it wasn’t ectopic the coils would pop the sac before the fetus was viable. I was told I could have a reaction to the nickle. I also did my own research on the procedure and read the good and the bad reviews BEFORE I did the procedure.
I’m so sorry bad things have happened to these ladies. I don’t think blaming the Essure company is going about it the right way. There are to many in between variables that can be responsible, which may be no ones fault at all. There has been an abundance of good experiences and what looks like minimal problems. Most of which appear to be attributed to things other than the company.
