I had the Essure procedure done about 4.5 years ago. About 2 years ago, I started gaining weight, sleepless nights, night sweats, anxiety, top of thigh tingling, sharp pains at the area of where the coils are. I have not addressed these issues in great detail with my gyn, because I thought this was just my new ‘normal’ way to feel and live. Also, there is loss of sex drive. Like, it’s really lost. I exercise and my family eats very healthy.
I didn’t think much of all of my symptoms until a friend sent me an article about other women experiencing the same. I have been to my primary care physician with complaints of sleeplessness, frequent headaches, etc. I got put on sleep aids as well as anxiety meds. Now, I am a firm believer, its from the Essure. I would love to have them removed. I suffer endometriosis and have had multiple surgeries for it. I have also had two c-sections, and a placenta previa for my second pregnancy. I am at my wits end feeling like garbage.
