I had my Essure coil implantation done on August 2nd 2011. I was a healthy 26 year old mother of 4 and thought I was doing the right thing by getting essure done to protect me from becoming pregnant again.
Only weeks after having the surgery I started to bloat up constantly, just months after that came sharp to stabbing pains in my lowever abdomen and in my ovaries. I went to my doctor right away and explained the problem to them, however, it was only brushed off. As they told me my body had just not adjusted to the procedure yet.
Months went by and the pain only increased as well as more symptoms apearing, and a marriage that started to come unravelled. As intimacy became an issue due to all the pain I am in. Thankfully my husband is a good man and instead chooses to stand at my side to see me through this.
Made another trip to my dr who still insisted nothing was wrong. That I needed to give it more time.
It has now been almost 3 years since I have had the procedure to have essure placed however, I now suffer from severe migraines that no medication I have taken has helped, nausia worse then I ever had when pregnant with any of my four children, cramping like severe labor pains in my lower abdomen, bloating I can go from 113lbs all the way up to 124lbs and look about 4months pregnant, fatigue so bad that it makes it almost impossible to function, and fainting. I have fainted several times over the last several months, but had diziness only months after the coils were put in place.
I have just made my doctors apt with a new OB/GYN in hopes to get some answers and a solution. I want these coils removed in hopes that I can go back to living life as a person instead of feeling depressed and zombified all the time.
