Back in 2008 I decided after my 3rd child I was done with having children. My doctor suggested I have the essure coil put in me, said it was great and easy and would work for me. So the day I was to have it done, I found out I was her first she has ever done this too. She had a rep from the essure company in there to make sure she was doing it right. She did it and it went easy. I had very mild cramps during the procedure. It took maybe 20 minutes. So basically ever since the procedure my periods are getting worse every year since then. I used to have mild cramps and the bleeding would be normal I would say. Now ever since then they are so heavy I have to wear super tampons and change them every hour and a half, and have to wear a pad. Large blood clots come out every time I change. I start spotting 3-4 days before my period with a dull aching inside me. Then when my period starts the cramps are so painful I sometimes cant move. Nothing works on the pain. I never connected that the essure may be the cause, but when I saw the other womens stories the same as mine I figured this has to be it. I have other symptoms but not sure they are related but they have been happening since this was done. I am forgetful, I have anxiety out of no where. I have gained some wait and cant seem to get it off. I dont know but something needs to be done. I cant afford to get these out of me. I need help because I cant spend the more years in pain. I think there are many more women out there like me who didnt realize this could be why they are having problems. I think we need to get the word out to local news and if more women hear about it and complain, maybe then something can be done.
