Hello, im 38 years old. i have 2 boys from previous marriage 10 and 7, step son whos 9, husband oops child support kid 4 and our together essure baby who turned 2 oct 4th. so happy that my mom saw the piece on wxyz channel 7 detroit. She taped it for me since i now live in northern michigan. i couldnt believe it! i felt so happy and relieved that Im not crazy or alone with this essure problem. this is my story.
2009 i wanted perment birth control. i did my homework and essure seemed to be my best option plus my doc raved about it. 2010 i had the coils put in. 3 months later i went for the dye test. i even made the tech keep me there longer then the 15 min required. she told me ill never get preg again. a year later i felt funny like i was pregnant. a wk later my girlfriend visited me at my moms in detroit she told me her sister in law was preg and she had essure done. they did an ultra sound and saw that 1 coil was in uterus. so i drove home felt like a life time took 4 tests and they all confirmed PREGNANT!!!! now i thought it was kind of strange that 2 girls from same neighbor hood end up preg. so during first ultra sound i had both coils in place. next one couldnt locate one. the docs up north here never heard of this essure so i found a really good doc in saginaw michigan. she had heard of it but never put them in. she Dr. Russell had talked to her colleagues from all over michigan and couldnt believe how many women were coming in to their offices with problems and getting pregnant. during my c-section my doc couldnt find that missing coil. ill never forget it lying there and her fishing around and telling me…sorry gina cant find it. soooo my daughter is beautiful and healthy.
i have issues, weight gain look 8 months pregnant, im so bloated all the time, headaches, infections, tired, hair loss, gag reflex is aweful, periods are so heavy and bad clotting, hot flashes, the pain i feel is like cramps only a few times a month nothing major. and a BABY lol
