    You should call the doctor's office about it this morning, even if you get an answering service or machine. Keep it short - "I have been bleeding heavily for 2 weeks."
    If you get constant pain, go to an ER. Get a thermometer and take your temp each day. Go to an ER if you have a fever.
    Women with Essure are reporting many problems, and there are numerous class action lawsuits against them.
    The FDA has forced Essure to put warnings out now, but they haven't forced them to stop making the product.
    As usual, they drag their feet when a product they approved turned out to have high numbers of side effects, some harmful. The devices have been known to shift around in the fallopian tubes and even perforate. I would demand an Xray to see if the devices have moved.
    And their approval process was totally ignored, but was approved anyway.

    If your doctor doesn't know about all the recent reports and risks, find a new doctor!
    ANYTIME you allow a treatment, drug, or device in your body, be EDUCATED about it, preferably FIRST.

    You can tell your story on Erin Brockovich's page (the woman famous for single handedly fighting for a class action lawsuit against all odds, even though she was a lowly clerk in a law firm. Her employer gave her 2 million. He got 133 million. She has been taking on causes ever since). Good movie made about it, called Erin Brockovich.

    Here's ONE of the class action lawyers just for an idea of what is happening. You might want to check out others closer to you, just in case you decide to consult one.
