I am 17 weeks and 5 days pregnant. I did not find out until I went to the hospital for pain and they told me I was 12 weeks. I told them it was a mistake I had Essures and An Endometerial Ablation in April 2012. I hadnt even had a period since May of 2012. In one instant my life changed drastically. But let me back up. In 2003 I had a DVT in my left leg and I noted that in my health history when I got pregnant with my daughter in 2005. After lots of test they told me i had a blood clotting disorder. My preganancy became hi risk and I had to inject myself 2 times a day with blood thinner. She came and was fine but 5 months later I suffered a Pulmonary Embolism and was hospitalised for 5 days. So the begining of 2011 I went to a very well know OBGYN here in Kansas. He told me because of my age and clotting hisotry it would be too dangerous to have more kids. I did agree and asked for a hysterectomy he refused and said they wouldnt know how to regulate my hormones. He was very adamant that Essures was the way to go, that they had little side effects and were permanent. He also told me that he wanted to help with my heavy bleeding and do an Endometrial Ablation. I trusted Him and God knows I wish I hadnt. From the moment they were placed in me the pain was awful and sharp. it was a miserable experience. He told me it was normal and I would get over it. I felt like know one believed what i was going through. Now here I am pregnant and going thru so much. The man I was with left because he didnt want kids. I had to move in with my parents who praise God are so supportive. I have to inject myself with blood thinners twice a day and I have to MISS so much work because of all the doctors appointments. Its scarey and overwhelming. I have so much anger toward this doctor. For not listerning to me and being so egotistical when i told him of my pain. And now I find out from Essures OWN website that you are NOT supposed to do the Endometrial Ablation with the ESSURES!! Why in Gods name did this Doctor not see that warning? And why do so many other doctors know that it shouldnt be done that way. Now they arent even sure where or how my placenta is attached. Shouldnt someone be held responsible? I know when this baby is born I will love him/her its just right now there are too many doctors giving me bad outcomes and too many unkowns. And I have to change all my plans and hope this doesnt financially do me in. These things need to be taken off the Market! They are painful and can cause so much damage. I DO NOt want any other woman to go thru what I have been and am going through.
