My name is Judy Owsley. I am 29 years old. I got Essure done in 2008. I needed a permanent birth control, so they could do novasure. Since having Essure, I have been very sick. I gained 70 pounds in three months. I have severe swelling and have to take 40mg of fluid pill everyday. My muscles and joints aren’t working real great. I’ve dealt with depression and anxiety. My Doctor diagnosed me with fibromyalgia, chronic muscle fatigue, chronic pain, IBS, RLS, depression, and bi-polar. I have been to all kinds of doctors including Cleveland Clinic. My stomach stays bloated like I’m 7 months preganant. I have horrible mood swings. I also have experienced pelvic pain. After reading some of these stories, I’m wondering if the Essure is the problem. None of this happened until after I had it done. My plans are to find a doctor and see about getting it removed. Please don’t get this done. My life hasn’t been right since a year after I had it. I just want to feel normal again. I want to be a normal 29 year old. I want to have the energy and be pain free so I can play with my kids. 2010 was a bad year, the doctors took me off work, my mother had to move in with me and care for me and my children because I couldn’t get out of the bed. I hope someone can get something done about this.
