My good friend called me today (October 3rd, 2014) and asked me if I loved the essure procedure. I told her I loved it but what I didn’t realize was this: I got it done 4 1/2 years ago. I would have never known! I have gone to so many drs and have had so many blood tests done that came out perfectly clear and they told me that I’m perfect and nothing is wrong with me, I got on depression meds that did nothing, I’ve had un- explained back and stomach problems with X-rays that can’t be explained by drs, yes on the headaches and don’t even get me started on the hair loss!!!!! I’ve been tested for thyroid issues, menopause. They said I was perfect. I had an X-ray for my Lower back and nothing showed up and they said looking at it, I’m perfect, and There’s nothing wrong with me. Sex hurts SO bad and I cry a lot of the time cause of the crazy pain! I’m always nauseous! Always. Constant stomach ache And stabbing pains (mostly on my lower right side), Memory loss to the extreme. I’m depressed and extreme anxiety. Restless leg syndrome. I’m psychotic! I’m totally aware of all of this but I can’t help stop any of it. And then the bleeding!!!!!!! I’m having periods every other week to every 2 weeks. I hope and pray everytime that I’ll go a full month before having another period and most of the time that’s not the case. And if I’m not bleeding I’m releasing so much discharge (thick or runny but almost always tinged with blood) it’s almost uncontrolable!!! Im changing my pads over 3 tImes a day. Since I got this done so many years ago, before there were many questions about it, I would have never put these things together with essure. I have been so frustrated and confused on why the doctors couldn’t find anything wrong with me, but it’s ALL SO CLEAR NOW!!! I Am so messed up. I have so many issues due to essure I dont even know where to start!!
