Since 2008 I’ve had bouts of inexplicable pelvic pain, headaches, bloating, and weight gain. Never considered Essure was the culprit, but it only makes sense after reading other stories on this site which mirror my symptoms. All of these doctors push products regardless of how it will impact you because their bottom line is $$$. So if a company is willing to pay a bonus or other perks, then yes your doctor will push a Essure and conveniently forget the side effects. plan to ask my provider and insurance to remove the Essure. I’m certain I will encounter red tape. Thank you Erin for a main site for us to comment.
