Hundreds of women say this non-hormonal permanent birth control has ruined their lives.

It’s called Essure, and it’s marketed for women who are done having children.

According to the marketing Essure is 99.8 percent effective for women who don’t want any more kids.

How It Works

Essure is a birth control device inserted into the Fallopian tubes.
Tiny metal coils are implanted by a gynecologist in the doctor’s office.
After several months, uterine tissue grows into the metal coils,
blocking conception.

The Side-Effects

“It sounded like a good thing to me. I mean. I’ve got a busy life. I’ve got five kids.” said Crystal Plumlee.

Plumlee chose Essure because it was the most affordable, effective option.

“It’s not worth it.” she now says. “It might seem easier, but it’s not worth it in the long run.”

Plumlee now has joint pain, chronic fatigue, weight gain, irregular heavy menstrual cycles and debilitating headaches.

“There are some people who are having success with it, but I would
not want to gamble that. I’m not a gambler. Unfortunately this is
something I gambled with, and I’ve made one of the biggest mistakes of
my life.”

Sarah Payne got the Essure coil implants in 2010.

Though the procedure is supposed to be relatively painless, Payne said it was the most excruciating pain she’d ever felt.

“It was like a ripping.” Payne said. “When you stand up it feels like
someone’s taking your muscles or your insides and trying to pull them
apart. It would take me to the floor.”

Soon after Essure Payne started getting migraines, hot flashes, night sweats, hair loss and severe pain.

She believes inflammation from the metal coils sent her into early menopause.

Payne called her doctor and others to report the trouble after she first got Essure.

They have all suggested a hysterectomy.

“He said, ‘Your only choice is to have a hysterectomy, and then we’re
going to put you on bio-identical hormones.’ And all I could think
about was more pills.” Payne said.

There are now thousands of women across the U.S. who are begging the FDA to pull Essure off the market.

Argument from Size

When we step on an ant,

An ant smaller than a fetus,

We acknowledge killing an ant.

 

We may not fret,

After-all, it’s an ant!

Haven’t we the right to kill an ant?

We do confess, we killed an ant,

Though it be smaller than a fetus.

 

When a mother, a nurse,

A doctor, a bio-scientist,

Or technician trained in the art,

When “we the people, a nation,

Cut short the life of a fetus,

All deny the killing.

"It’s too small to matter."

 

Do we really believe,

We are doing good?

Have we a care beyond convenience and profit?

Do we have the right?

Are we in the right?

 

How big does Truth have to be?

Argument From Size

When we step on an ant,
An ant smaller than a fetus,
We acknowledge killing an ant.
We may not fret about it,
After-all, it’s an ant!
We have the right
To kill an ant.

When a mother, a doctor,
A nurse, a bio-scientist,
Or technician trained in the art,
When a society and a nation,
Curtails the life of a fetus,
All deny killing a human person.
“It’s too small to matter”,
Do we really believe,
We are doing good?

Do we care beyond
Convenience and profit,
Are we in the right?
Do we have the right?
How big does Truth have to be?
