I haven’t had any very serious problems with Essure, other than the fact that I am 9 weeks pregnant right now and I am completely taken back. I chose Essure because I am the mother of 3 young children and I did not want to worry about becoming pregnant again because my family was complete. My doctor talked me out of tying my tubes the old fashioned way because the recovery was longer than that of Essure. This alone had me sold. July 10th, 2014 was the day I will forever regret. The day I had Essure implanted. Now, I have to fight back and forth with myself on whether or not to end a pregnancy that I didn’t want in the first place. My heart goes out to the hundreds of women whose lives have been forever changed by something that was never meant to do any harm. I am part of a group on Facebook and the stories that many of those women have told are absolutely horrific and I can only pray that I never have to go through what they are experiencing. Essure should most deninitely be taken off the market, as it is not safe and is not 100% effective.
