Approximately 6 months after I had the Essure inserted I started to experience severe pain in the right side of the abdomen\stomach. This pain has been ongoing for 2 + years and I have been through test after test looking at everything from my blood, liver, gall baldder, lungs, stomach, colon, etc. All of my tests have been normal however the pain still exists. I am at my wits end with spending co-pays and forking out thousands of dollars to meet my deductibles in order to figure out what is wrong with me. My gut tells me that Essure is to blame as the pain is always worse before and after when my period would be (although I have had ablasion so I do not have an actual period but my body still goes through the symptoms and timing). I had expressed this concern to my OBGYN but he says that the pain is too high in my abdomen to be from Essure but why did these symptoms only come in around the time when my tubes were probably then fully blocked due to scar tissue. I am otherwise a very healthy, in shape person with no other health concerns.
I really would like to get the Essure removed but I had to actually go into surgery to get mine put in and that cost me > $1000 at the time to meet my deductible and now my deductible has been raised therefore the thought of putting out another > 2500$ to get this removed just makes me sick.
Please keep me updated on the latest with your efforts and count me in as a supporter for woman’s rights with regards to pulling Essure from the markets available birth control options, protecting other woman and forcing the manufacturer to pay for us that have been through this to get it removed!!!!
