Melissa’s Story

I suppose I could consider myself lucky, as when I was having the procedure done, my ob/gyn could not insert the second “spring” into my right fallopian tube in December of 2012. Months later, I began to have severe left lower quadrant pain; so bad, that my husband had to take me to the ER several times. No one could figure out why I had such horrible pain. I saw a gastroenterologist, had numerous ultrasounds done, and it finally hit me. I told my husband, “I thinl it’s the Essure.” Until I had it implanted, I had never had this type of pain! Even six years later, I’m still experiencing pain. This device should have never been approved!
