I had essure placed in 2010 after the birth of my third child. It was suggested to me by my Dr. because I am overweight and it would be less invaisive and safer. I have over the past couple years had problems with dizziness, headaches and very irregular menstral cycles. Be fore essure I was healthy (overweight but helathly) and all three of my pregnancies were normal with no complications. My cycle was always very regular and i was always very energetic and out goiung.
Over the last two years I have had some months where I have no period for a couple months in a row and then i will all of a sudden have a very heavy flow lasting about five days. I have been more tired and had a much more flat affect then my usual self. I no longer have much of a sex drive which makes me feel terrible as my husband thinks it is him and I cannot explain it to him. I never even thought about a possible link between the essure nd my symptoms until today.
I was having some abnormal brown menstral bleeding ( out of the blue) the last couple days that was to light to be considered a real period and not to mention I just had one two weeks ago, so I began researching and stumbled upon this site. I began to read the stories in disbelief as i have many of the same symptoms of most of the women all i seem to be lacking is the horrible painful cramps. I hope by sharing my story someone will find an answer for all of us whom are suffering and don’t even know it!
