Hello, my name is Victoria, I too have had the Essure Procedure.
In January of 2006, I gave birth by csection,my last of five children. I spoke to my doctor about tieing my tubes. She insisted that due to my old scare tissue which is from previous incisions from csections, I should seriously consider another method. Then she suggested the Essure Procedure. She explained it, ‘like it was a walk in the park’. That it had been clinical tested but it is fairly new. Little did I know, I was gonna be the new experiment ginny pig too or should i say victim to these coils i had inserted 7 yrs ago call Essure.
7yrs ago I was a healthy 35 yr old mother of 5 with a very active life. But now year after year there is a new sympthom, ok this year is extream pain in my hips that shooting pain zaps down my legs to my feet, new one, Thanks Essure! But anyways My symthoms are as follow: Very bad lower back pain to the point where u cant be comfortable sitting ,standing or sleeping. Just horrible pain! Noticed in my first year burning in my back calfs of legs, pain in wrist and ankles. The hands started aching like in between my knuckles and my wrist , then my ankles hurt and my feet would trobe with pain and i would ask my children for massages but that would only make it hurt when they stopped.
As for my period, first day ok but after on every 2nd day, i bleed rediculously! A tampon a hour. And the blood clots the size of quarters. The first tiime it happen i thought i was miscarriaging. Now i know the routine and to be prepared.
Next, I dont know if it is from going to all different kind of doctors and specialist or just another sypthom of having foriegn objects in my body, I now suffer from Anxiety and Depression. Is these all symthoms of the Essure Procedure i ask myself? Well doctors have told me all kind of nonsense that could be the diagnosis but hello, I was completely healthy before these fricken coils were inserted. A Security Guard , I would walk four hour tours a night.
Went to college to get a degree. Only to end up disabled from what i feel is from having the Essure Procedure back in 2006. Some days it feels like death is knocking on the door cause no pain med can get rid of this pain. Might mask it but then i must tolerate the discomfort of pain and trobbing pain through out my body. Still no doctor has the answer, I do !!! Take these out!! And the experiment will be over. I read that when removed the women feel 100 percent back to normal. Please no other women should have to go through such continued aggrevation and nusense of burning or aching pain. Pinching in my ovaries to where I have to hold my hip so the pain will go away.
So my insurance won’t pay for the removal. R u kidding me!! I became suspicious when i was trying to eat and work out , lost alot of weight trying and still the pain!!Was healthy and stilll the pain??So April 16th im gonna insist my doctor take xrays to see if the coils r still in place. The doctor thing is becoming old. The reviews are becoming old!! We need Action Ladies! The Company should be paying for the removal of these coils. Im a very dissatified customer/patient!! I’m probably one of the first patients to get the Essure procedure. Ok listen up, if u have it, Get it removed asap. If u dont be blessed and run for the pill. Wish i would of just took the old fashion pill. Ugh!
I just hope and pray that this form of birth control be taken of the market. I am living proof that it is not so simple. That simple life for me ended the day I agreed to allow them to do the Essure Procedure.
So women who are thinking bout using this method. Please do your research on the product before going though with it. I trusted my doctor 100 percent because she did deliver my children csection. Never ever risk your health and happiness for something you assume is safe. Research!!!
