So I wanted to take a minute here and share my story with you ladies since i FINALLY have answers on what has pretty much destroyed my life. A little over a year ago I had the essure done. The answer to my prayers I thought I’m done having children and at 30 years old and a history of reactions to birth control my OBGYN highly recommended essure she assured me there would be no bad side effects since this was a non hormonal permanent birth control the only risk I was told was the coils could come out but after 3 month when they check to make sure your tubes were blocked it was highly unlikely . So for the last year or so I’ve had life changing issues since getting this procedure! ready for the list!! I’ve gained almost 60 pounds with efforts to lose such as weight watchers,super shred diet and going on the prescription med phentermine I would lose maybe 10 pounds then gain it all back quickly plus some and yes I was working out almost every day. I have pain in all my joints and some days could hardly move. My energy went from 10000 to 0 mind you I have a son that’s now almost 2 so having no energy to care for my baby was extremely painful. My teeth started to crack and cavities now are filling up my teeth even tho I take very good care of my teeth. I have pain down there almost like constant cramps. My periods are so heavy and I have nothing but clots. My doctors that I’ve been seeing have been useless. I was diagnosis with fibromyalgia and ‘possible’ rheumatoid and depression. Doctors have pretty much told me I need to change my diet that’s why I’m blowing up like a balloon LOL I wish it were that easy I was a size 12 for a very long time now since essure I’m an 18!!! Even started seeing my doc to get lapband surgery started because my weight gain is causing my pain SO they say!! My extreme fatigue has been debilitating! My dentist has NO explanation why my teeth are pretty much crumbling out of my mouth! I came across this story 2 days ago and everything clicked!! I’M NOT THE ONLY ONE!! I’m not crazy and something is VERY wrong here! I have an appointment with my obgyn next week and I’m demanding these damn life destroying body debilitating coils be removed!!! Please Please ladies keep talking about this! I’m so happy and relived I FINALLY has answers! We are NOT alone and something needs to be done! God Bless you all!!
