Essure is a birth control that is meant to be permanent. This Essure consists of spring-like coils that are inserted into the fallopian tubes. After the coils are inserted scar tissue forms in the tubes and the end result is the fallopian tubes being completely blocked.
Women usually choose the Essure because there is no surgery involved and the time to recuperate is minimal. After three months the patient is instructed to go for a HSG to make sure the fallopian tubes are indeed fully blocked.
Most women are happy with the choice they have made in this birth control. But, there are women that are having Essure problems and are asking for help. Because this product is relatively new many physicians tell them that the coils cannot be removed without a hysterectomy. The sad truth is that women will have the hysterectomy without realizing that Essure is reversible.
Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith of Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center have women contacting them on a regular basis to see if they can remove the coils due to the Essure side effects. Most women have searched for a while and seem to be getting no answers or even a physician in the medical world to admit that Essure problems are happening. The reason may be that the physicians just do not have enough experience with the Essure because it is still considered so new. Often, because the physician is still learning about Essure they do not always want to believe that women are experiencing as much pain as they state they are.
The most important thing to remember is that you know your body better than anyone. If you have a pain where the coils are then you have a pain. A million physicians can tell you this cannot happen but they do not feel what goes on inside your body.
Essure issues are happening and women are talking about it.
Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith have made it clear that Essure removal and Essure reversal is very possible. For those that want more children the Essure reversal is performed. For those that just want to get rid of the side effects there is Essure removal. With the removal the fallopian tubes are not reattached back to the uterus so there is no worrying about another form of birth control.
If you are having Essure problems you are certainly not alone. There are many women who are going through the same thing and are being sent from one physician to the next. A full hysterectomy is not needed and there is Essure relief available.
