I was 18 and i was on my 2nd child. I spoke with my doctor about different forms of birth control. I didn’t want to have kids anymore at that time, but of course with any teenage girl who is 18 years old, your mind changes about 10 times a day.
I was married had my second child i though my life was set and wonderful. I spoke with my doctor who said ‘Kayliecia you have had two posterior births and if you have anymore kids you could have posterior births all the time.’ So, I ended up getting the Essure done a few months after my son was born.(me thinking I didn’t want children at that time)
Now I have been divorced as of last year and find myself possibly wanting another child in the future, when i get more established. I have had regret and disgust that I would actually let that happen to me at such a young age. I am 21 now. And just recently about two days ago, the Doctor did an ultrasound and now my one coil on my right side that is suppose to be in my fallopian tube is in my uterus! So now I am going to have to get surgery, but the only surgery that I can get is getting my tubes out, or a hysterectomy.
I want a reversal and I believe my insurance should pay for one if I want one! It is my body not theirs, to say whether I can’t or not have a child again in the future. Now I have to come up with the money myself to get this reversal procedure done, that is taken place in North Carolina it can cost around $5,000 to $7,000 to get this procedure done, which it wasn’t even my fault it was Essure’s for even putting this horrible thing in women.
Some symptoms that I have had are vaginal bleeding, sense of tearing in my abdomen, low haemoglobin, stress, anger, and regret.
I’m hoping something can be done for all of this and not just spread awareness but take this product off the market and get help for the women who have had this procedure done and have serious problems with this Essure, like mine where my uterus is perforated.
