I had the essure procedure done in 2009. As of last week (Dec, 2013) I was in the hospital with severe pain and heavy vaginal bleeding (2 weeks into my cycle, period not due until Jan 10). CT scan shows the essure coil is out and puncturing my uterus. I have an appointment scheduled for this Monday Jan 6, 2014 to discuss the surgery option to 1. have the coil removed and 2. partial hysterectomy.
I started researching essure due to this incident and have found numerous women who have been suffering like me. I have had numerous trips to the hospital with complaints of pain in my adbominal area and the doctors could never find anything wrong. Everything has always been blamed on my colon (I had a colon resection Feb 2012), but after multiple colonoscopies my colon is just fine. I have been tested to Lupus, MS, and Crohn’s due to my symptoms of fatigue, abdominal pain and extreme fatigue.
After reading so many stories, I am starting to believe that it could be the essure. I will have it removed next week along with the hysterectomy and will be able to gauge my symptoms based on having the essure taken out.
I hope this helps, and am extrememly interested in any lawsuit activity that may transpire due to this birth control.
