Hi! My name is Violet. I am 30 years old with 3 children already. I didn’t want to get pregnant anymore. I went to my obgyn office in September of 2012. I wanted then to get a tubal ligation. Instead, Essure was the answer the doctor came up with. She made it sound like a piece of cake . She said Essure has no side effects and less recovery time etc.
I had a bad feeling about this but went against my better judgement. This was the worst thing I could have agreed to. I had the coils implanted on October 9, 2012. It’s been he’ll since then. About two days after the procedure, I had been having sharp constant stabbing pain on both sides, irregular bleeding , bloating, weight gain , dizziness, unexplained rashes , tingling on hands , hair loss, chest pain, anxiety, pelvic pain, and back pain.
The worst of it is that I am allergic to nickel my whole life . I can’t wear certain jewelry and buttons from jeans as they give me rashes on stomach area. I would like to see Essure taken off the market due to its false promises . They don’t mention the side effects. They don’t tell you that it contains nickel. They just want to make money. They don’t care about our well being at all.
Please help all of us woman who have been suffering from these horrible side effects . More and more women who are getting this procedure are starting to come out and say how horrible this device is. Please help us in this fight against Essure and the new owners Bayer and also the old ones the Conceptus.
