My story began in 2011,
I went into talk to my doctor about hysterectomy or tubal ligation, but she introduced me to essure. I have had 3 csections and gallbladder removal and the dr made it sound so simple and i thought it was awesome no surgery no down time, but after i had the coils placed i told the dr i could feel them, she said that wasnt possible.
So i pushed it to the side still feeling them once in a while.
After a year i started to notice there was something different in me first loss of sexual appetite, then noticed that i didnt have a lot if energy. I brushed all aside.
Then last year it hit hard, i started having pains feeling just completely different with my body. then i started getting dizzy spells and confusion and well all lot of different things numbness pain with sex, loss of energy overall just not me. Then i wen to a dr he said just that i was starting to have arthritis in legs but still couldnt understand the pain through my whole body, so i was in search for a second dr, made serveral trips to the er with headaches pain uti kidney stones and list goes on. I was getting to the point that i was going crazy, my family thought i was making things up, my new dr bless her soul she diagnosed me with fibromyagia and treated me as so, i later felt confident to let her know about my birth control( which she had never heard of) and believed me unfortunatley she is the only medical dr that believes me.
Some days passed and i found this group essure problems and started reading i cried and cried so many women had the same things happening to them, finally i wasnt crazy it wasnt in my head. Now we all try and find obgyn dr willing to help us and we all have the same response its not related to essure.
Please help us we want this product off the market we dont want another women to deal with what we are dealing with. I come to you because i want the whole world to know and if there is anothere woman out there thinking that they are crazy they arent!! They are not alone. Please help us be our voice!!!!
