I had the Essure placed in me in January of 2011. The only reason I did that was because my Doctor assured me it was the best thing to do. The morning I went in, he had a hard time getting the coil in, he tried and tried and finally it went in. He told me he never had experienced this problem. When he began the second side, he told me I would have to come in again. I asked him to try again and finally it went in it, the experience was horrible.
The first month I had it, I began having bad pains, a lot of bleeding, and bleeding during sex and also sex was painful. I also began having bad headaches. I told my doctor and he assured me it was not the Essure!
My periods are never normal anymore, blood just pours out and it’s not normal. The Doctor tested me for all sorts of things and all tests came back normal. During one of my Doctors appointment the Doctor stated I could be allergic to the nickel, so I asked well can you take them out? He responded with, “Well no they cannot be removed”. I asked him what if I am allergic to the nickel, what can we do, he began to get nervous and stuttered saying “well it’s not likely your allergic to it” He could not answer any of the questions that my Husband and I had.
Now I have to find another Doctor to help me with this. I’m tired of being in pain and bleeding during sex, my back hurting and headaches! I do not recommend this procedure to anyone! I just want this Essure out of me.
