Hi I am a 24 year old mother of four and after the birth of my daughter in 2012 I was hospitalized for nearly a month not allowed to see my children because of the infection in my uterus so I missed the first month of my daughters life as well as my other children and their first day of school ect. I was hospitalized for pulmonary embolism and mrsa in my uterus (this was the delivering doctors fault by the way yet I cant sue them for it). Before my daughter was born we lost 2 children that I carried to almost 6 months both times and both times they couldn’t seem to find the reason for it. So after she was born my doctor told me that if I were to get pregnant it would be fatal and if he were to tie my tubes it too could be fatal because he would have to cut me and it was likely to make the blood clots return so he said my options were pretty much death or the essure. The choice was obvious considering I was told it was a safe and pain free procedure. When I had the procedure it was VERY painful and seem to have complications immediately but when he was done he said everything was fine I went back after 3 months like normal and had the sonogram done and once again very painful because of the saline they injected in my tubes to see if they were blocked once again he said everything was fine. Ive had it now for about a year and it is very uncomfortable every time I sit down I feel pain especially when im going to start my menstrual period which by the way last for about 2 weeks and I start again before the month is up and also when me and my husband are intimate I can feel it stabbing me its very uncomfortable, Intrusive and PAINFUL. I would not recommend this procedure to anyone.
