In 2002, I was already a Mother of three and was looking for an easy way to get fixed without having surgery, so my doctors recommended Essure. They discussed that it’s surgery free, easy 20 minute procedure in office then I’d go home. It sounded like a great decision, so I said yes. A couple days later I went to my doctor to have the procedure done, two hours after he started the inserts I remember the pain and looking down to see blood all over the chair. he sent me home and told me to come back in a few weeks for a checkup. Two weeks later still in severe pain and still bleeding profusely I went for my checkup only to find out that my Fallopian tubes had busted and my uterus was swollen. So the doctor sent me straight over to the Emergency room and called for an emergency hysterectomy. I do not recommend this method to anyone, and yes I cry all the time because I was 21 and thought I knew an easy way out.
