Hi! My name is Brittany and I’m 25 years old. I’m the mommy to 3 beautiful little boys, Colton, Parker and Jaxon. After I had Jaxon I decided I was done having kids and our family was complete. So after talking to my doctor I decided to go with Essure thinking this sounds great!
The doctor said it is less invasive, no incisions, and quicker recovery time. I was fooled. I had the Essure done on May 13,2013. On May 14th, I began my living hell. I was in ER due to severe pain and nausea. Everything was fine they said and I was told to follow up with my doctor. So i did.
I was told the pain was psychological and it was in my head. The 16th I was back in ER for same problems. Again I was told I was fine and I should not come back to ER. I have had non-stop cramping, severe pelvic pain, and constant migraines to the point I cry and vomit, have developed adverse reactions to foods I’ve always eaten, hair loss among other symptoms. I wish I would have found out beforehand all the problems this procedure causes.
I am now working with a new gyn to talk about removal. The word hysterectomy has come up and as much as I don’t want to but I need to have it done if it means getting the old me back. I pray they take these evil coils off market sooner or later so no more woman have to experience what I and many more women have.
