“Teresa had a successful reversal of Essure and delivered a healthy baby boy.”
“Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith of Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center were the first reproductive surgeons to report successful pregnancies after Essure reversal in the medical literature. These surgeons were the first to report and publish case reports describing successful Adiana sterilization reversal and Essure sterilization reversal.”
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.
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.
For more information on Essure reversal and removal the tubal reversal nurses are available to speak with you by calling 1-919-968-4656.
How many women do you know that will tell you she absolutely knows something is wrong but her doctor is saying there isn’t? If this hasn’t happened to you chances are you know someone this has happened to.
Women need to be their own advocates. Nobody knows your body better than you do. And if you do not get the answers you are seeking then you need to keep on with your battle. You are in charge and it needs to stay that way. Only you are in control of what happens to your body and not anyone else.
Many women will go to her physician and tell the doctor what is wrong. After explaining all of the symptoms the doctor will look at her and tell her what she is feeling can’t be happening. The woman leaves the physician’s office feeling not only frustrated but also second-guessing herself. This woman has two choices. She can go home and live with the problem or she can take a stand and research and demand answers.
We see this everyday with women. We read stories and messages from women who are suffering and searching for answers. Two very true instances are women suffering with Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome and Essure Problems.
The women that fall into the above two categories are women that suffer daily. They suffer from the time they get up in the morning and sometimes right through the night.
But, women are also very strong. They research until they find the answers and they also find others that are going through similar issues. The women posting on the article Essure Problems Continue Among Womanexplains one such issue. These women are fighters and not willing to give up.
Another great story is Megan’s Story: PTLS Syndrome: Megan’s Experience. After going through the aftereffects of tubal ligation she wouldn’t give up. Megan knew something was wrong and kept researching to find the answer. After finding the answer she is now posting and blogging and has a Facebook Page so that others will know they are not alone. Megan has become the spokeswoman for PTLS Syndrome and states even if she helps just one woman she has managed to do what she set out to do.
Women need to speak up and let the world know that these things are happening. Essure IS causing problems and Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome is real!
If you have a story to share please do. There are many women who are looking for answers and you may just have what it takes to help another or to find someone who is going through the exact same thing you are.
Although Essure is still considered new there are women are coming forward and writing about difficulties they have been having since getting the Essure coils. Most seem to be writing about prolonged bleeding and pain and others are having stomach pain located around where the coils are located. Others suspect they may have an allergy to nickel, which is used in making the coils. For others a coil has dislodged and cannot be found which is very disconcerting, to say the least. Essure problems will probably continue to rise due to more women having the procedure performed.
As women are coming forward and asking about Essure removal they are being told this procedure cannot be reversed. When they push the subject with many in the medical field they are told the only way to have the coils removed is through a hysterectomy.
Having to have a hysterectomy to have the coils removed is NOT the only option. The surgeons at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center have been performing Essure reversal using a procedure called tubouterine implantation. This is where the coils and scar tissue is removed from the fallopian tubes and the remaining healthy tube is reattached to the uterus. This is the best option for women who want to have children after the Essure procedure. With the tubouterine implantation the coils are completely removed. With IVF following the Essure procedure for pregnancy the coils are generally left in. Having the coils in place with a pregnancy may cause problems as the pregnancy progresses.
For those who want to have the Essure removed it is possible and without having to have a hysterectomy. The surgeons and staff at Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center are more than willing to answer any questions you may have. The tubal reversal nurses can be reached by calling 1-919-968-4656.
