I had my first child at age 42 and she was born a month early. My OB/GYN was pushing me to get my tubes,hysterectomy tied or permanent birth control due to my age and wanting no more children. She REALLY pushed ESSURE on more than one occasion. It was just like others said, she made is sound so luxurious like a cruise destination. I finally agreed to have the procedure. 2 weeks after they were put in I knew it was a mistake. I called the office and told them about a burning pain in my abdomen and was told it was normal. I let it go thinking it would get better…it did not. I tried to bring it up again and again to my OB and just felt humiliated by her dismissal of my concerns. I told her I read online all the side effects and she told me ‘Amy if you believe everything you read online.’ So I stayed away from her office and went to an urgent care for urine checks and PAPs thinking I had a UTI Always coming up negative. Finally I was having such excruciating pain in my back an abdomen I demanded my OB help me. I went for an ultra sound which clearly showed the device was not where it should be. My OB STILL acted like she had no idea what I could be experiencing. Reluctantly she scheduled a CAT SCAN.
My symptoms have been:migraines,severe stomach bloating,abdominal pain, back pain, cant sleep on back or stomach, ‘fuzzy brain’, sometimes cant form words, severe mood swings.
This device needs to come off the market immediately.
This site was such a huge help top me because I was feeling like I was losing my mine and my doctor was brushing me off.
