I am 26 with 3 beautiful kids. I have a lot of medical problems such as 4 blood clotting disorders and have to take strong blood thinners. I of course have to be careful of everything I do and take. I didn’t want to have anymore babies since it could lead to serious complications for me or baby so my doctor said since I can’t take hormones and my family history has bad problems getting tubes tied then the best option is the Essure. I got it placed in on February 28, 2013 and kept calling the doctor to tell them something was poking and stabbing my right side. They did ultrasounds and said it was normal. I’ve had pain since and now I’m having a lot of tube infections and cysts on my ovaries which I’ve never had before. Now almost a year later of nothing but pain and complications and several antibiotics I’m now having to go through a hysterectomy. Since I still can’t take hormones all have to go through the tough menopause at such a young age. I still am on antibiotics because of another tubal infection. Come to find out the Essure has caused all of this.
