I decided after I had my son in 2010, I no longer wanted children. My doctor suggested that I get the Essure coils to ensure I didn’t get pregnant again. I had no idea what Essure was and I trusted my doctor, so I said yes. The Essure procedure was the most painful procedure I have ever had. A couple of months after the Essure coils were put into me, I began to have some weird things happen. I had my period for 14 days one month and the next month it lasted for 21 days. I just thought it was due to giving birth. I decided to go in and see my doctor. He took x-rays and realized I had a cyst the size of a grapefruit growing over my right overy. I was told I had to have a hysterectomy. It scared me for so many reasons. I knew I didn’t want any more children, but I wasn’t ready to go through menopause. I obviously agreed to have the surgery. I am not a doctor and I felt like he knew what was best for me. I went in to have the surgery. I had my family there supporting me, but I was scared. I have never been put under and I was afraid I wouldn’t wake up. I guess the surgery went well. I woke up and was told that they were able to save my left overy! I was so excited to think I didn’t have to go through menopause yet!!!!! That wasn’t the truth. I have not been able to maintain my body temperature or my hormones since the surgery. Every day I pray to God that I will have a better day than the one before. I have a hard time cooling off every day and my emotions are going CRAZY!!!! Essure is not the way to go!!! Essure is the most poisonous thing I have ever put in my body.
