Im 29 years old and am scheduled to have a partial hysterectomy on Oct.3. I had the essure procedure in Dec 2013 after having my daughter. My son whos now 8 was concieved on the pill. My daughter was a planned pregnancy…however, i dont want anymore and thought the essure was a sure form of birth control. Now 8 months later im sorry i had it. Ive had every symptom from constipation to body aches, hair loss, severe pelvic pain, swelling in my lower abdomin and constant bleeding for months at a time!!!!! in my experience doctors just want to place us on a second form of birth control for the bleeding and cramping…uh ok what about the other awful side effects????!!!!! The manufacturer needs to pay for all of our pain and misery and this product needs to go asap!! 29 years old and forced into a hysterectomy…this is absurd!!
