Hi, I had my Essure coils implanted in Oct.2008, and from there my life went down hill. I started to have pains in my lower abdomen but I also had a hernia so I never linked the two together, but then I had the hernia fixed and there was still pain. I have a nickel allergy and the doctor told me that it was copper, it wasnt intill after the procedure that i saw it was nickel.Through the years I have ended up with the following problems: cramping, pelvic pain, painful periods with heavy flow, ovarian cysts, hot flashes, night sweats, loss of libido, breast pain, chest pains to where i thought i was having a heart attack, leg pains, back pain, abdominal spasms, hip pain, metallic taste, neasuea, gas, migraines, dizziness, numbness, I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia, mood swings, allergies, recently I have developed a gluten intolerance, swelling of my legs and feet, hair loss, insomnia, I’ve had changes in my vision, blurred vision, and more that I’m forgetting. This has affected more than just me, my hole family has suffered from these issues I have. My kids deserve a mother that can play with them not one that can’t pick them up or run with them. My husband feels neglected because I have no want to be intement, it is very painful during intercourse. I wish I never got this procedure it has literally been the most painful and miserable time in my life and it just keeps getting worse.
