My name is Michelle and I’m from Michigan. I had Essure procedure done in april of 2014. Had nothing but issues from the day after the procedure. Heavy nonstop bleeding pain cramps and just all around being uncomfortable. In July I went to have the test done to see if the coils were where they were suppose to be and doing what they were suppose to be doing. The procedure was so uncomfortable and painful, the doctor said to the nurse in the room that the one tube is closed but the other one isn’t. He then preceded to tell me that the coil wasn’t even in my tube it was outside the tube. So I went for my followup with my gyno that did the procedure and she told me that when she inserted the Essure in my left tube that she must have not inserted it in my tube. So the next question was did I want her to redo the procedure for that tube, well hell no I don’t. I don’t want to keep going through all the pain and being uncomfortable. So the only other option was to remove my tubes. So that’s what I had done in September of 2014. So when the doctor got done with the procedure she went out to my husband and showed him pictures of my uterus and cervix and showed him that the coil in the left tube had uncoiled itself and attached itself to the right side of my stomach lining just below my colon. Within inches of my colon and it was so deep into my stomach lining by major arteries that she had to go really slow to cut it out. Once I was healed up and back on my feet I felt normal again. I’m so glad I’m rid of all the Essure hell that I went through. Had I had known it was gonna be the way it was I would have never had done it and just had my tubes removed from the start. So please think twice before u make a decision like this don’t just take your doctors word for it talk to people do research. It could save your life and be the difference between a quick fix and actually being safe about it.
