I had Essure done almost a year ago now. I am having tons of issues. Like many women that I’ve read their stories I have great weight gain in the belly area and still continue to have weight gain. My blood pressure has gone up and I am now always swollen in the feet and ankles even after a visit to my doctor for prescription water pills. I can feel the coil in my right tube and it’s painful at times.
I am 30 years old and am now having hot flashes and night sweats. I told my OB before the procedure that I cannot wear ANY type of ear rings due to infections that happen each of the four times I’ve had them done. He pushed the procedure on me and made it sound completely harmless. I am now actively looking for a OB that will take these out, not having much luck may I add. My OB gave me no choice on cutting my tubes instead, even though I had a C-Section and it could have been done all at once. I normally wear a size 3-5 now I’m in a 16 and still growing. My family doctor is running every test known to try and figure out if it is something else, and all test are coming back normal. I really hope this will reach someone who can help me, and maybe keep other women from being in the dark on the side effects of this birth control.
