In 2008 I went to the doctor saying I wanted a safe birth control that was 100% effective. The doctor told me about essure, saying it was permanent and safe with no side effects and no surgery. I was happily married at the time and had my two beautiful boys. Little did I know that I would be divorce four years later, and the doctor never mentioned side effects with the Essure device. I had more painful periods, severe headaches, backpain, and fatigue so bad I could not function, and to top it all off depression. Something that was promised to be safe now made my life hell, and all the doctors I went to see over the past 6 years said there was no way it could be the essure. I had constant pain in my abdomen at the site of the implants and at times when standing up too fast would feel like something was being ripped out of my stomach at the site of the implants. Finally this year in March 2014, a gynecologist decided to schedule me for a laparoscopy to those what is causing the pain, him still being convinced it was not the essure. After the laparoscopy the pain became worse and the doctor said there was nothing he could do for me. So in more pain and very unhappy I went back to my regular army doctor, who then finally said ‘let’s do an ultrasound’, that was done and the results said I had varicose veins in my tunes by the scar tissue around the implants and they diagnosed me with early chronic pelvic congestive syndrome. My army doctor did some research and finally agreed with me, referred me back to my gynecologist with with the results. Little did I know that I would get the worst news of my life. I was told told that the only way to get the essure out, was to have a full hysterectomy as soon as possible, so here I was a 29 year old divorced mother of two beautiful boys, told that no matter what happens in the future and having the possibility of a baby with a man I love in the future, would never be there. They told me they they will call me later that day with a date for surgery. That was last Monday June 2nd 2014, they did call me less than an hour after I left saying that surgery was scheduled for forth at coming Thursday June 5th at 11am. I had no time to come to terms with this. I Irene in information surgery, and to this day, 5days after surgery still still refuse to think think about the fact that I lost a part of myself, my womanhood, my chance of ever having another baby. Yes I’m in pain painful pain from surgery, but already the fatigue is less, my headaches headaches are gone and so share my back pain. It was just just as I feared the Essure that ruin my life for ever. Even after it was taken out. I am heartbroken and beg of other woman woman to never ever get Essure.
