Event Type  Death  
Event Description

I had essure implanted because my dr said it was 100% effective with no known side effects. One year and a half i got pregnant and the pregnancy was ectopic. I went to the emergency room because my life was at risk. I now suffer heavy bleeding, migraines, bloating, nausea, mood swings, hair loss. I just found out that my right coil is in place and the left coil is not. Now at (b)(6) i'm facing hysterectomy. It's been a nightmare.
