Thanks to everyone for helping to feel I am not alone. My GYN told me about the implants two years ago. He said it would be great to decrease menstrual symptoms, non hormonal, quick and relatively easy procedure in office. I was told to take two motrin before the procedure and I would be d be ‘just fine’. It took over 60 minutes for this procedure to be complete. My doctor cranked these coils as if it were a medieval torture device. There are no words to describe the pain of this procedure. I had no form of anesthesia while my doctor was ‘making scar tissue’. I was never the same. I’ve had pelvic swelling, daily bleeding, cramping and the most painful periods of my life. Two years have passed since the procedure and the pain increases steadily. I had an ultrasound and found that my implant punctured my uteris. I guess that explains alot. I am scheduled for a hysterectomy. I am so afraid. Part of me has to be removed in order for me to be pain free? My goodness! There are so many of us screaming and no one wants to help us!
