hello my name is samantha feltner, i am 22 years old and i have four children. i got the essure implantation in 2012. when i went in to get the procedure done, my doctor never really explained alot about it, but the fact that he said it was fast recovery and everything sounded perfect so i went along with it. i later found out that the devices were made of nickel in which i am allergic to. my doc also told me that i would only bleed for a couple days. i bled for a month straight with very heavy bleeding, losing clots and alot of pain. i went back in to my obgyn and explained everything and he said that it coudnt have been linked to the coils. every since i got the coils implantedi have had four misscarrages, constant abdominal pain, migraines, heavy bleeding, itching and everytime i have intercourse it hurts so bad i cry. i have four children and im a single mom and this has effected our lives in the worse way. every day is a struggle for me. i went back to my doc today complaining about everything, and all he did was told me it couldnt have anything to do with essure and sent me on my way. but i know better their are way to many women that are having problems and all of them are the same. i have did alot of research and u can get a tubal reversal and have them removed for 6,2oo dollars in louisville, ky. but i dont think it should be left up to us women to have to pay for it, when this device is just putting women through hell and ruining lives. i think that the medical card should pay to have them removed. because it covered getting them implanted. all these young women are having to have historectomys because of this just to ease the pain. i am only 22 years old and i someday want another child, getting these coils was the worse decision i could have ever made and im so glad that all you women are speaking out about how essure has effected your lives. hopefully some day soon a change will be made and everyone that is having to go through hell every day will be able to have the devices removed so we can live our lives normally and happy. keep it up and keep pushing this and a lawsuit and all this will end. no one deserves to go through this.
