I had the Essure procedure done in 2012. Only one coil was able to be inserted because the other fallopian tube would not cooperate. This was an in office procedure at my OBGYN professional building. I rec’d confirmation that both tubes were completely blocked after the 90 days had passed. The tube that wouldn’t allow the coil to be inserted was ‘naturally sealed/blocked’ I was told by my doctor. She then gave me to okay to discontinue all other forms of birth control/contraceptives. In August of 2014 I began to experience sever pelvic pain, it felt like I had something stuck in my vagina. I began to worry excessively about what could this pain be, did i leave a tampon in and it got stuck? I went to the emergency room because the pain was so severe I couldn’t even sit down properly. They gave me a pelvic exam and sent me home with an antibiotic that was to be inserted vaginally at night time. I used it for a few days and then stopped. My pain returned off and on for the next few weeks. I remember cooking one night and all of sudden I became extremely ill….the pain was so debilitating I couldn’t even walk. I broke out in a rash all over my face and neck as well. A few days later I found myself back in the ER with severe pelvic pain, it felt as if i was being stabbed in uterus. My body went into a state of shock/panic attack….I began shaking, having chills, dizzy, lightheaded, I couldn’t swallow, i was gasping for air….my hands were so cold, my heart was racing, my blood pressure was high as I was being admitted into triage at the ER. I didn’t know what was wrong with me. I thought I was going to die. The pelvic pain was still present, yet the doctor’s couldn’t explain what was going on or wrong with me. So they sent me home. About 3 weeks later I missed my cycle and began to worry, because my cycles were always on time, never late. I have 4 children, the youngest is 2 years old, so I felt like something wasn’t right. I got a pregnancy test and it was positive. I was a nervous wreck. I called my doctor and she ordered blood work to confirm the pregnancy hormone was present in my blood. It came back positive and the very next day I was in my doctor’s office having an ultrasound to confirm what she and I thought could no longer happen…A PREGNANCY! I was devastated. I didn’t want any more kids, I thought I was done after having THIS PERMANENT birth control procedure. What is with the false advertisement???? It’s not permanent for one. And if my body was experiencing severe pain before the pregnancy where is the coil at? Is my baby now at risk since i did break out into a rash because of the nickel sensitivity? I’m so worried and distraught about this and wish I would have done more research before deciding on the Essure procedure and just trusting my doctor 100%. I am now 5.5 months pregnant due on July 3rd, 2015. I’m so disgusted that was all a scam and it’s damaging so many women. I believe everyone who has been affected by this needs to speak out and Bayer needs to be held accountable, even if force is required.
