I had ‘essure’ placed 10 years ago before it was called essure it had a long medical name I can’t remember now. The reason this procedure was recommended is i had consent for a tubal to be done at birth of my third son but in labor It was found out I had ITP a bleeding disorder and tubal wasn’t done my spleen was removed within my sons first year of life and it worked, my platelets improved. Once recovered I visited my gyn and asked where I stood with tubal he recommended due to my bleeding problem there was a new procedure on the market and I would be a perfect candidate because I wouldn’t be cut. It was a rough year and I was finally well and agreed I did not want to be cut. I joined the Essure FB page as I read post after post my heart dropped because for the past 10 years I do not feel well I have been tested for so many problems, all I kept saying to pcp is I do not feel well but test kept coming back fine. I was put on anxiety meds anti depressants. I am now coming to the realization this is the culprit of my many symptoms. Also I never had a nickel allergy test. I am concerned because when I was implanted. It was not called essure it was so new I feel like I was the lab rat for this. I don’t know where to begin. I thank you all for validating me, for ten years I thought I was going crazy and I am sure family and friends thought I was too. It is a bitter sweet feeling I am angry, I have gone through this and I am still going through so much discomfort, but I am grateful to have found this page to share my story.
