My name is Ariel. I had the Essure done July 30, 2012 and since then I am constantly in pain! I’m always cramping even when I am not on my period. It is more painful on my right side than left. I have constant back/hip pain that is too painful to sit/stand for long periods of time. I also have horrible rash that I think may be from the Nickel in the coils, and migraines that are more intense than ever before.
Occasionally I get this painful burning sensation in my uterus that feels like I am being stabbed with a hot knife, definitely not UTI. My periods are normal, as they are only lasting for 4 days and semi heavy. But when I am on my period my pain is 10 times worse. It may sound weird but it’s as almost I can feel my (right) tube contracting around the coil and that is causing me pain.
I know I don’t regret the decision to not have anymore kids, but I feel I regret getting this procedure. I’m wondering if I would have been better off getting a Tubal instead. My body is definitely not what it used to be before this procedure. I am scared what may end up happening to me if these issues persist. What did I get myself into? That doctor is no longer in town, but I think he was just too lazy to do a tubal and opted for something more quick. I hope when I see a new doctor he does not ignore my symptoms and does something about this. I am so tired of suffering.
