I had the essure done in April of 2014. At first I started having headaches that turned into migraines. I didn’t think too much into it. I have night sweats so bad that I have to change pjs in the middle of the night. I also have fatigue along with insomnia. When I do sleep I have crazy dreams, I am worn out. I also started having hot flashes…..I’m only 35 years old.
Around the holidays I noticed that I was becoming more and more depressed. I didn’t want to get out of bed and I knew I had to do something before it got out of hand. I am a single mom of two teenagers. I was put on medication which works for awhile but then the depression comes back.
I am also cramping a lot on my periods and even more when I was ovulating. It’s been horrible! Not only do I have awful cramping but my back hurts and my hips. Sometimes it feels like my insides are ripping apart. I have always been thin but my waist now looks like I’m pregnant and I’m not….100% sure. I’ve started wearing baggy shirts because people have noticed my belly pouch and I have even been asked when I am due.
I also noticed that I started to bruise easily. I hit my foot on a small step ladder and it swelled and bruised for weeks!
The worst part of all this is that my brain seems to be gone. I forget what I did minutes ago. I can’t think of the right words to say. I feel like I’m losing my mind! If I wasn’t only 35, I would think I was a 80 year old woman with dementia. My kids think I’ve lost it and my coworkers are concerned. I want this out and I don’t want anyone else to have to suffer any of this! This is not enjoying life!
