Hello, my name is Shannon, I am now 38 years old. I had essure put in in 2006. That was the worst mistake of my life! I was talked into tihs by my doctor who at the time was the first doctor in my state to do this procedure. When I had mine done he actually asked if I would allow other doctors to watch. I guess he was becoming a teacher for them. I know at the time I had it done the first side seem to go ok but the second he had issues with. Not sure what happened but I remember watching the screen as he was placing it and it filling up with blood. After it was done I was bleeding and he sent me to this room while I was bleeding. They ended up giving me some pads and sent me on home. I had cramps for days afterwards and actually still do. One of my major issues is I have been having high blood pressure. The doctor I see now says something is causing my blood pressure to run high like it is. Well I am no doctor but I am sure its the eesure. I have pain all the time. It moves from my front to my back. Sometimes it it so bad that I can not even stand without hunching over. I have four children and I feel it has robbed me of the mom I could have been. I often have break outs on my skin that had never happened before essure. Gosh the list actually could go on and on. Please do not get essure! E hell for sure! Thank you!
