I was 37 years old and knew I didn’t want to have anymore children. After talking with my doctor I decided Essure would be a good option for me. After the waiting period I went to have the dye test. The radiologist was concerned. Not only did it not close my tubes it had torn thru both of them leaving holes. I started having severe pain. The pain got so intense that I ended up in the emergency room where I found out that the Essure coils had also punctured thru my uterus. I had multiple infections. I ended up having a hysterectomy. If this can happen it is not safe for women. This product should be pulled off the market. I hope someone reads this and decides not to have the procedure. I had to endure a lot of pain. I missed work and had to use all of my savings to pay bills while I couldn’t work. Then had stacks of bills from hospitals and doctors. It was financially draining.
