I had my baby girl in 2011, my husband and I decided she would be our last. Before she turned one is when I decided to make sure there will be no more babies. I talked to my doctor (this was in Colorado when I lived there) about what was best for me. The first thing he said was the Essure. Well I decided that would be best with one in school and two little kids to take care of all day with barely any to no recovery time was totally awesome for this on the go mommy! I found a doctor who would do it and made my appointment. I went in and got out. That day and for the next two weeks it was the worse ever! I called and told them how much in pain I was in. I went back in for the check up and I told her I hated it and I wanted them out. She told me I would have to get a hysterectomy. She then told me it would be fine and things would smooth out. How wrong was she! My menstrual cycle got heavier, I got more cramps and more painful ones, I got a lot more blood clots and it felt like every time before my menstrual cycle when you would cramp from the egg going through the fallopian tubes I felt pressure and pain. I still get all these symptoms besides now when I exercise I have pain there. After sexual intercourse I have pain. It was the worst thing I have done to my body. I was told I could get a hysterectomy but now I am finding out some doctors remove them but with a huge cost. When I was in Colorado my husband made great money well he lost his job and when that happened we lost everything else as well and now we live in California. I now have no financial means to get these things out of me! Anyone who is looking to get ‘fixed’ do not do this! Hopefully one day I can get these things removed even tho it shouldn’t be me paying for it. I really hope to spread the word so more women like me don’t have to go through this pain! I hope this gets taken off the market quickly!
