I decided to get assure 3 years ago. I have three beautiful children and did not want to have any more babies. I was 32. I felt like this procedure was simpler and better than vasectomy. After all, it was routinely done in the office. I had no issues with the procedure and I was in no pain after. It seemed like a perfect choice. Except that couple months later I started having abdominal and pelvic pains. CT showed inflammation in my bowels. I started having unexplained GI problems that led to vitamin deficiencies. Then some cysts appeared on my pancreas. At the same time some auto-immune issues that led to rare hip disease and surgery, soon followed by ankle surgery, because of my random Achilles rapture. I get rashes on my body, pelvic pains and headaches, general joint pains, and fatigue. I feel like my body is just falling apart. I changed my diet and take supplements to increase my immune system and keep my body from getting worse. Like I’m fighting something that I can’t see, that is trying to destroy me. Now I realize that my body is fighting something, which is why where all the energy goes. Everything started with that one procedure. I have been in more hospitals and seen more doctors last two years that in my entire live. I used to be very active, play sports and never sick. Now I constantly hear ‘funny’ comments at work and home for me to be careful or I’ll break. I want Essure out, and I don’t understand why it is so expensive and not covered by insurance. Beyer should at least offer to pay for some of it!
