Dr. Bremner

As a woman, are you searching for more information about your unique health care needs? Are you interested in improving your quality of life in the new year? To learn more about specific women’s health issues and solutions, plan to attend the free Women’s Health Seminar hosted by Randall Bremner, M.D., Mayo Clinic Health System gynecologist at Winneshiek Medical Center.

Dr. Bremner is hosting the free seminar for area women of every age on Monday, March 3, from 7 – 8 pm in the Mabel Community Center in downtown Mabel.

The seminar will provide valuable health information about up-to-date birth control options, treatment for heavy uterine bleeding, abnormal pap smears, PMS or menopause, pelvic pain or masses, bladder control issues, cancer screenings and sexual intimacy concerns or infertility. Dr. Bremner will also talk about how health care reform may impact individual birth control options for women in the new year.

At Winneshiek Medical Center, Dr. Bremner provides information and counseling on all types of family planning options and methods, and respects the needs and values of each patient. For families interested in permanent birth control options, he offers a procedure that is new to this area that can be done in the comfort of a physician’s office in a few minutes without hormones or the general anesthesia. Dr. Bremner says, “There are great options for women who have completed their families and are interested in a permanent birth control solution. I am pleased to offer options locally for women.”

To register for the upcoming family planning seminar at the Mabel Community Center on Monday, March 3, please call 563-382-2911 or email communityrelations@winmedical.org.

Do not know essure is causing some serious and debilitating health issues for women? You doctors only see $$$$ there r thousands of us women having surgeries, multiple surgeries and hysterectomies to have this awful product removed from our bodies in hopes to get our health back. These coils r breaking migrating attaching to other organs like bowel rectum appendix ovaries and uterus!! The Fallopian tubes and getting perforated. Women r getting pregnant. We r becoming seriously ill. Severe bloating like we r six months pregnant chronic fatigue severe abdominal pain inflammation women with nickel allergies should not get it done but doctors r still placing women with essure that have a known nickel allergy we r having autoimmune responses bc our bodies r fighting a foreign object in us!
Women beware......there r serious side effects that !bayer the FDA and doctors r not telling women about essure.
There are over 6000 women on a Facebook support group called Essure problems. These r real women with real stories and proof that essure is not workingike we we told!

No, no it is not. Please do not encourage women to get this done. It causes serious health issues and needs to be taken off the market.

Essure sounds great, especially if it means no actual surgery!!

At least, that was my thought to begin with.

At the 3 month (excruciatingly painful) HSG, it was found that the placement meant they needed to come out AS SOON AS POSSIBLE. Just six months after having essure placed, I had to have surgery anyway, losing my fallopian tubes to this "great option" because one of the Essure devices had perforated. If it had gone any longer I would have lost my ovary as well. Not to mention, in only 6 months I developed constant hives as well as what was diagnosed as menopausal symptoms.......at 28 years old. The only good thing to having to go through surgery anyway was all that stopped within fays of removal. Although it did mean more medical expenses......more time lost from work.....but finally I feel better. All I am asking of you at the conference is to give ample explanation to the devastating side effects Essure causes as well.

DONT GET ESSURE UNLESS YOU WANT A HYSTERECTOMY. DOCTORS AND FDA AND BAYER ARE SUGAR COATING THE ESSURE. ITS NOT LESS PAINFUL, IT'S NOT FAST RECOVERY TIME, ITS A LIFE TIME OF PAIN AND SUFFERING! Please check out essureprocedure.net and Facebook group essureproblems
YOU WILL FIND EVERYTHING YOU NEED THERE!

This is much worse then a hormone it is a foreign object being placed in your body that is suppose to be permanent but the DO migrate Perforate & Essure is protected from any legal recourse with a PMA no matter how many women have been injured!
