At this point, I feel ashamed I even got the procedure done. Did I trust to easy? I made the decision to get the procedure done about 6 years ago. I felt pushed into doing it and was told that it was the right thing to do. The doctor really pushed for the Essure procedure to be done. Months following the procedure were horrible!!! I would bleed every 2 weeks and developed cysts on my ovaries that were viewed as ‘Not a big deal’. Intercourse was painful for years following the procedure. I went through life (and still do) thinking….’Well, I made the choice, I need to just deal with it.’ I have suffered with depression, anxiety, muscle pain, lower back pain, bloating and swelling, headaches, sleepless nights, having to refrain from intercourse with my husband due to pain, nausea, vision change, pain during working out, being in a state of fog, fainting spells, etc…… for the past 6 years. None of which I have experienced before the surgery! I figured….I need to just deal with my decision. It makes me sad. I feeling stupid and embarrassed. I tell other women DO NOT get the Essure procedure done!!!….. I am scared of what it is doing to me. I care about my health so much! It does not seem to matter what I do…..excercise, eat right, TRY to get enough sleep, slow down….my body still feels in a constant state of shock. I am just sad…..
