Kellie’s Story

I had the Essure implants inserted in 2005, when it was still a very new procedure. I opted for this form of permanent birth control due to having Crohn’s Disease and having already undergone two major abdominal surgeries. I also struggled with taking any type of birth control due to experiencing every side effect no matter what the dose. I did not seem to have any unusual problems for several years. Sure the menstrual cramping was a bit worse, which I had been warned about, but nothing a couple of OTC pills and/or a heating pad for a couple of days couldn’t get under control. However, in 2012, I started to experience more chronic symptoms. It took six months of

Jeannie’s Story

I sit here and write this story in tears, because since last year that I had my Essure implants inserted, my life has been miserable and pain filled. I got tired of going to the Dr and getting brushed off . I can not even go to diet a second opinion because I have no one to care for my 2 young children to evn make moves to get a second opinion. The reason my implants were recommended was because I had Gastric Bypass done and I also had a bout with Cervical Cancer where a portion of my cervix was removed. The Drs felt I may have had too many lesions to have a regular tubal ligation and recommended

Amy’s Story

In Jan,2007 I gave birth to my second child Sammi.  Befor giving birth my doctor and I had disscused doing the Essure producre  at my 6 week check up. For some reason or another I had to reschedule the appointment twice.

She drowned on her own spit up.  In Dec

Seana’s Story

I had the Essure procedure about a year ago because I no longer wanted to take the Depo Provera injections due to an history of  breast cancer in my family.  I did like this mode of birth control because I never had a period. The best 2 years of my life! Well not really but close. Since the Essure implants I have experienced: major PMS symptoms, intense cramping, severe hemorrhaging during my cycle, forgive me for the graphic details but I think it’s important for people to be aware of what to expect.  I have had to switch from regular tampons to super plus tampons  changed  hourly and since I had my child via caesarean section I don’t think it’s due to

Misty’s Story

I had my essure removed July 4th, 2014. I just had it put in Wednesday, July 2, 2014 and have had so many complications. First I had it done in office not under anesthesia. He numbed my cervix with lidocaine and then dialted my cervix, which I felt every minute of. When the doctor did procedure he kept pushing fluids through my uterus to open it up and find the tubes…this was the worst pain I’ve ever felt. This procedure was supposed to be a 20 minute ordeal, well it went on for an hour and 15 minutes. I left vomiting and crying uncontrollably it felt as those I’d been violated. Well a few hours later I felt as if

Salina’s Story

My name is Salina, I’m 31, and this is my Essure Story.  I had the Essure device implanted about 3 years ago, as a means of sterilization.  I was a single mother to an extra special boy in my late twenties, and because of all of the issues my son already had, I thought it to be most fair to myself and my boy to get sterilized; so that I could put all my focus on him.  My son is 9 now, and still requires a lot of extra attention; he has some developmental delays–which isn’t easy for a single parent or even a parent in a committed relationship to handle at times.  Especially not when they’re not feeling well;
