My name is Dawn and I am 32. I got the essure placement in July of 2012. I have one daughter and one stepdaughter. I knew that I did not want any more kids because I wanted to make sure that my girls had everything that I did not have. My husband is in the Navy. He was set up to get himself done But because of his job he could not met the appointment times or get the time off. He was getting ready to deploy. So after spending lots of time talking with him and other and my (at the time) dr highly recommended it. I got it done. I was told that it is fast and easy to put in and I would be back up and running the next day. we figured that this would be the best thing since now my husband was gone and I at the time was going to school full time and I had a two year old to take care of. I got it Done mid July and was NOT up and ruining the next day. I got so sick that I could not take care of my daughter. I could not eat or drink anything with out throwing it and then I gained so much weight. I looked like I was going to have another baby any day. I started to throw up blood and was in and out of the er 12 times in two weeks. The doctors could not figure out what was wrong. I had to take a leave from school and had to find someone to help with my daughter. This went on for two months and nothing was being done. You might ask why did they not ship my husband home, we’ll he is a submariner and by the time he would of gotten the message, they would of gotten to a place to even think about shipping him home, he would of been home. Two day before my husband was to come home I went back to the er. Still they could not figure it out. They ran test after test and no one could not tell me a thing.
Finally after about four months of this. The doctor said it was my thyroid. I did not believe him, but the test did show that I was a little, i mean very little that I had a hypo thyroid. So I got but on med. over the last two years. I still get sick for no reason. I have weeks that I throw up every day or can’t even eat and I still have a lot of weight that I can’t get ride of.
About 7 months ago I stated to have these pains. They almost felt like labor pains. My lower back hurts and I get really bad hart burn. I still can’t eat things that I use to eat all the time. One day will be fine but the next time I eat it I get sick. Every time I trow up there is blood. hurts to be have sex with my husband. It gets so bad that there are times that I can’t move and when I do I feel as if someone is trying to rip my insides out. I went back to my doctor and asked him what was going on. He was not the one that suggest this essure thing and had no clue about it. So he ran some test and they came back negative. He now he has to send me to a specialist because he is at a loss. He did suggest I do some research and see what I can come up with because he has never heard of this thing. So I started to look on line and found this web sit and now I am scared. Has any one had this essure taken out and feel better?
