I have had three children, but after the last one at age 37 I wanted to have permanent sterilization. I was a little concerned about the whole prospect of major surgery so when my doctor mentioned it could be done a different way now as outpatient surgery where they simply insert coils to form a natural barrier my interest was piqued. I asked about risks. I was told, ‘There are risks with any procedure but I have done many of these procedures and not had any serious issues come to my attention, a little cramping the day of the procedure is common, and you should feel back to normal the next day if not that same day!’ I really like this doctor as a person still, so even now I am dumbfounded as to how he can be a doctor that does this and did this to me in December of 2014, and yet not bother to mention when directly asked about risks that enough serious complaints have been made for this forum to be in existence over a year now? I need to find a doctor to this out before my problems worsen. I also specifically told my doctor when I asked what they were made of and he told me that my mother was allergic to any jewelry that is not real gold and cannot wear it, that I could wear any until I got older and now i hardly ever wear jewelry because as I have gooten older a lot of it will make me itchy and I end up taking it right back off. I asked him if I could be deveolping the same metal allergies and that cause a problem and I was assured i would be fine. Well my problem initially was the horrible cramps I had the day of and the day or two after the procedure. I expected cramping but not like that. Then every cycle I have debilitrating cramps before my period, usually exactly 3 days before. I never had cramps prior to the procedure until the first or second day of my period. The worst thing is I have never had ovarian cysts either prior to insertion , but a few months after I suddenly had the worst pain in my lower right abdomen. It was so sharp at times, but not an all day every day pain. Because it was so low I wondered if something was wrong with my ovary. I talked to my family doctor who then sent me for an ultasound of my ovaries. The results showed a cyst in my right ovary and follicular cysts in the left. I went to see a doctor who works with the doctor that did my procedure and he said the cyst was the reason the right ovary was nmeasuring larger than the left. He suggested we wait and do another ultrasound in weeks to see if it had went away on its own. It has been hurting me more and now suddenly thelast few days i have had issues with bladder control! I went to a nurse viist at family doctor today and was told I do not have a bladder infection. all I can think is that this cyst has gotten bigger and is pushing on my bladder? When I have to go it is sudden and immediate, twice now I have not gotten my pants down soon enough. I just feel like this is al related. I never had cysts before and I think it is a reaction to the metal. I hope I do not need a hysterectomy. the 40’s I have always heard are the prime of a womens life and sex drive so I was looking forward to that. That is another thing i have not gotten my sex drive back at all either! I wnat these out and I am open to suggestions. I just do not want to lose all my sex organs to get them out. i hope I find that ois possible or becomes so in the near future.
