Cassie’s Story

Hi my name is Cassie. I am 24 years old and a mother to a beautiful little girl and a baby boy. My husbandand I knew after we had our son that we didn’t want any more children. I discussed this with my doctor soon after giving birth to my son. She suggested Essure.  She said it’s what doctors are steering towards over having a tubal ligation, because that is a major surgery and with Essure there is almost no recovery time, it’s preformed in the office and it’s cheaper. So I opted for this procedure BECAUSE I really didn’t want to have surgery and be down, especially with two young children to care for.  I had my coils inserted in July of 2013. During

Susan’s Story

My Story well My name is Susan. I have a four year old son. He’s what keeps me going! I had the essure done May 2013. I have had problems with essure ever since I woke up from having them implanted. I went to my ob and told them that I wanted to have my tubes tied. I discussed it with the nurse and she told me about essure. I wasn’t sold on it but she told me that the office only did essure that they no longer did tubal ligations. I was so desperate to have my tubes tied that I didn’t care I just wanted it done. I agreed but I shouldn’t have. The first time they tried

Tina’s Story

I am 29 years old, and have had Essure for 2 years, now. I chose this option over the traditional tubal ligation because it was less invasive, and the healing time was much less than with the traditional way. The procedure went well, I felt a bit of pain, but generally, it went about as I had expected. Fast forward a few months (I assume after the Depo wore off from the 3 month period to check placement, etc.), I began experiencing severe abdominal pain, very heavy, bright red bleeding with very large clots. I get very dizzy and faint during my period, every single month. I am a full-time student, and often miss lecture/class during the first day or

Jamie’s Story

I had the Essure placed on April 17, 2014. I only had one side done, because they couldn’t place the other side. After about two weeks, I developed an infection. Like many others, I was tested for STD’s (all came back negative). After a course of heavy duty antibiotics, the infection subsides, but the pain where the coil was placed continued. It hurts a lot…Plus, add to that a whole lot of side pain…Thankfully, my doctor listened to me and agreed to remove the Essure; however, I have to get both of my fallopian tubes removed this Friday, so I can be Essure free.  I didn’t have any real female issues prior to this procedure. I feel tremendous sympathy for
