I had the Essure procedure done in the summer of 2011. I was told that there would be mild to moderate discomfort after the procedure but that is was just part of the healing process. I believe 3 or so weeks went by and I was STILL having pain (not just discomfort) so I called my OB/Gyn. They said that some women just take longer to heal than others. I ended up going either to the ER or my OB/Gyn to have an Ultrasound to make sure the coils had not moved. They said that everything was fine. I have chronic low back pain and have since I was 16 due to a car accident. Since I got Essure, my back pain has been almost unbearable on a daily basis, I am always getting headaches and sometimes migraines. I also get very nauseous quite often. I am always fatigued and have pain somewhere in my body on a daily basis. I have been telling my doctors about all of this for years and they have done blood tests, ex-rays, MRIs and who know what else. All of these tests have come back fine. That doesn’t dismiss the fact that the problems still exist!! The only thing that makes sense to me is that Essure might be the culprit. A person knows their body and I know mine. SOMETHING IS WRONG and the health care professionals always seem to just brush me off!! I need and want answers…no one should have to feel like this on a daily basis and not be able to find out why!!
