It begin after my 3rd baby, my Doctor recommended Essure! He said it’s a fast and effective procedure with little to no side effects. No down time.
Well, delivered my Baby July 7, 2010, lost all baby weight, back down to 97 lbs. Come September 7 2010, I had Essure placed. 3 weeks later I had horrible stomach pain. Doctor just gave me codeine. I also had gained 7 lbs. I was Severly bloated no relief. 6 days of heavy bleeding, labor intense unbearable stomach pain to the point I was crying. Could not take care of my kids. The pain was too bad. Again given codeine.
Later had same pain, Doctor said must be my colon or my stomach. Referred me to a specialist who did a colonoscopy. EGD found my colon and stomach to be normal. Back to the OB I go , his opinion is I’m stressed. Oh and the bloating is worse with nauseous dizzy spells and hot flashes. He ordered a pelvic ultra sound and saw nothing.
I’m no where near stressed. I workout 95 minutes a day. I write and I am very active, I get out and do things. All the same problems still 2 years later. My only option to get them out is a Hystorectomy. I’m only 30 I should not have to suffer a major procedure for a 30 minute coil insert. And a hysterectomy is not the only way to get them out.
Since Essur, my life has been a burden. I’m not as I use to be. I have joint pain too and the Doctor ruled out arthritis. So I’m just spending money on test after test and nothing. So it must be Essure because women many ages are having the same problems with Essure!
