My name is Molly and I am 33 yrs old. I had the essure procedure done when I was 29 thinking that it would be the best thing for my health after having cervical cancer and for my marriage. My husband, now ex husband, was insistant that my birth control was making me crazy so we looked at other options and came across essure. I have two children so he told me it would be best if I got the procedure done since pregnancy horemones can increase my chances of the cervical cancer coming back. Looking back on the situation, I now see that my ex husband is a very controling man but at that time I did not see it. My doctor saw right through him and continued to ask me if this is what I truely wanted…not him. Afraid of upsetting my husband, I said yes, this is what I want and had the procedure done.
I have given birth to two boys and never felt so much pain in my life. It was so bad that I threw up right after the procedure in the doctors office. Like I said earlier, he is now my ex husband and I am starting over with my life. I now have a man in my life that is so wonderful to me and thinks of nothing but what would make me and my boys happy but he has never been married and has no children of his own. I am so lucky to have him though…he treats my two boys as though they were his own but I know it bothers him that I am unable to get pregnant. I would love nothing more than to be able to share the joys of pregnancy and birth with my wonderful man someday.
Since the procedure in 2010, I have had alot of the same symptoms that other women are complaining of having. I am always in some sort of pelvic pain wether it be moderate or severe depending on the day and my energy level is practically gone. Sex is always painful no matter what position and I am so afraid that something horrible has went wrong. Then about five months ago I was having pregnancy symptoms. Long story short, I was not pregnant but it made me get online and research if there was any way to get pregnant after having the essure procedure. I was shocked to find that many woman have become pregnant even after the procedure. I’ve looked into having it reversed but that procedure seems worse than actually having essure done. I would love to be able to give the love of my life a child some day but am afraid that my decision to let my ex talk me into getting essure done has ruined that chance for us.
To any woman reading this, do NOT get this procedure done! There are better ways of birth control than this. You will regret it later in life if not live with severe pain for the rest of your life because of it.
