Hello All My name is APril I am 29yrs old. I had Essure done in december of 2011. After Having my third son I went to my Dr for a tubal. He convinced me to get essure because it was ‘easier’. I relectantly agreed and he sent be home with a pamphlet to read. Well at the very bottom I noticed that it said if you have a nickel allergy not to get it done. I told one of the nurses I was allergic to cheap jewlery especially earings, they made my ears itch,burn, and swell. I was told that this had nothing to with an nickle allergy;So I had the procedure done.( come to find out later 90% of cheap jewlery is nickel) I have had problems ever since; Severe stabbing pelvic pain that takes my breath away. I am bloated all the time,my belly always seems to feel swollen and bloated, my hips and joints ache. I have pain while going to the bathroom ( no not burning with urination, the uhh well other one ),I have a painful lump in my groin and swollen lymphnodes.I feel movements, palpitations ,dizziness, wxtreme migraines, nausea, and cravings. I get severe lower back pain also. I went back to the OB dr about 6mos later and told him about the pain and issues I was having. He did a few quick test and said I was fine and I was just ovulating. Seriously!!!, I am 29 years old have had regular periods my whole life, 3 kids, come on now im not fricking ovulating, I know what that feels like. With no help from him I went to my family Dr. He ordered an utrasound that revealed a large abnormal ovary on my right side. He couldn’t explain the other pains,swelling, and swollen lymphnodes though, Since I have no diseases. He thoguht maybe I was just vitamin D difficient. I asked both Dr’s about a possible nickel allergy and both just looked at me like I was crazy and saud it wasn’t poosible. Now I read stories of other women having allergic reactions to Essure. I am pissed and I am fully convinced that is why I have all my joint pain andswelling, pelvic pain and bloating, and swollen lymphnodes. Nobody wants to help though :(!!! Now I am also terrified of becoming pregnant like alot of girls on here. I really don’t know what to do. I am seriourly thinking about going to that clinic that reverses Essure; Hopfully that will end my woes.
