My name is Ivory I am a 35 yr old single mother of six…. I had my sixth child a in September of ’09…. I was unable to do tubal ligation due to my use of blood thinners( lovenox)…. I was introduced to the Essure procedure by my OB doctor as an alternative…. I was told they were titanium coil that would be placed to prevent pregnancy…. On November 18,2009 my life began to without my knowledge fall apart…. I was working as a taxi driver and by the sixth month of me having this product in me I had fallen Ill and had to quit my job…. At this point I hadn’t put two and two together…. Over the last five years I have lived a nightmare…. I’ve seen several doctors…. From pain management, a pelvic pain specialist, hematologist, neurologist, gastroenterologist and a few more…. All had their say and opinion…. I’ve had numerous hospital and urgent care visits…. I been diagnosed with IBS, migraines, intestinal spasms, bacterial infections, dysfunctional uterine bleeding,Vitamin D deficiency, anxiety and panic attacks and disorder, insomnia back and body pain, chest pains with unclear etiology and many more…. Although I suffered some trauma from a previous stabbing nothing prepared me for the destruction that ESSURE has done to my body…. I just want my life back.. It has taken the sheer joy out of my kids and myself..These things according to my history of clotting and the side effects,should have never been placed…. If my story does nothing else the least I want to do is save another mother wife daughter or friend from going through what I’ve endured..
