I had Essure done back in 2007. I had no choice for any other procedure to do. I was told by my obyn that this is the only procedure they do for permant birth control. I really did not like the fact of having coils inside of me, but my husband and I did not want anymore childern.
The day I had the procedure done I told the doctor it felt like he was trying to go through my back on my right side. The same day I had severe cramping. I was thinking i must be a weak women if other women got this done and went straight back to work. I was off work for 3 days because of severe cramping and heavy bleeding that last for 2 weeks. I was also told like many others that it was your body getting used to the coils.
About a year later i went from weight of 110lbs to 149lbs i am petite build i weigh more now then i did when i had my two kids. I started to have a lot of stomach problems was referred to a gastorligest for my stomach and bowel problems. Was told everything fine you just have acid reflex disease…Okay. I get a lot of headaches, periods are heavy than ever follow by severe diarrhea. I am 41 yerars old and thinking to myself what the hell is wrong with me!!!
Everytime I bring it up to a doctor they just say its all in my head. I am glad and sadden that there is other people out there who have the same problems and it is due to the procedure we all had. Now I can not get it removed because my insurance will not pay for it unless it is proven to be a health issue….
I would never recommend this to anyone!!!
