In December of 2010, I had the Essure procedure. My Gyn performed this at a local hospital. She was able to implant one spring into my left fallopian tube, but not the right (thank God). For 3 years I was plagued with reoccurring left lower quadrant pain. Pain that was severe enough to have me going to the ER at least three times. Each time, Dr’s claimed they could fine nothing wrong. As an Ultrasound tech, I was able to scan myself, and see that this spring appeared to move. I do not know if it pierced my fallopian tube or not, but wish I had never had the procedure.
