I had the procedure done about 5 or 6 years ago. About 4 weeks after the procedure, when I returned to the doctor to have the dye test done to make sure the coils were properly placed, and working correctly, the test showed, they were not working correctly, so I was to go back in another 4 weeks and have the test repeated. Two weeks later, one of the coils was expelled, or came out. It was on a Sunday, and I was extremely frightened. When I called my doctor, she said there is no way that would happen–it’s like well, it did–so I explained to her what it looked like, and then went into her office on Monday. They did an ultrasound, and of course 1 was totally gone, the other one is now embedded in the wall of my uterus. It was explained to me that it was also trying to come out-just did not make it. In order to have it removed, it would be a major surgery. I have never had any ‘optional’ surgeries ever performed, and so wish I would have never done this. I believe there is definitely something faulty with the procedure, and would like to be involved in any action if taken.
