In 2010 I decided to have the Essure implanted with encouragement from my doctors. After having a lot of discomfort as well as pain from it I decided to look into options to undo Essure. I was able to find a doctor who would take the Essure out and reattach my tubesc to my uterus. The pain I went through during the surgery of having the Essure removed was quite ridiculous. I spent almost 8 thousand dollars to get these little springs removed out of my body. Medicines and time off of work. This is a horrible suggrstion for birth control. I feel like it was the ‘in’ thing not the best thing to do.
