I decided to have the Essure placed to help prevent any additional pregnancies. After having my two healthy children easily, we decided we didn’t want anymore. After having the Essure placed, I had normal pains, such as labor type of pains, bleeding and abdominal pain. After a year, I started to notice unwanted facial hair, at first it was just a few, after five years I am like a man. I have emotional issues, I use to be able to work full time without any work issues. Now, I am finding I get too emotional at work, I am too tired to even try to work a full time job and my energy levels have plummeted. A week out of the month, I have insomnia. I do not have normal or regular periods anymore. I have done to several doctors and last year, I was diagnosed with PCOS. I never had issues before and all these issues are continuing to get worse. I asked family members, no one in my family suffers from PCOS. I clarified with my mom and she said that I was normal for my periods and even emotions as a teenager. My husband swears I have changed since I had the Essure placed. The worse part about all of this is the unwanted hair. I am very self conscious about it, I sometimes do even feel like a girl anymore. I cry because of it, and sometimes I do not even feel pretty anymore. I want to have the Essure removed, but insurance will not cover it and it is going to take a long time to save over $7,000.
