I am 33 years old with three children. I had Essure implanted in 2009 a year after having my third child. Immediately I began to have really bad cramping and bleeding. I brought it to my doctor’s attention and I was told it would go away in a few weeks. Since having my first child I didn’t get cramps before or during my cycles. The more issues I had the more doctor’s ignored me and told me it was not Essure related. I currently bleed for weeks and sometimes a whole months. Bloating that makes me look as if I am 7 to 8 months pregnant. Numbness and tingling in my hands, feet and arms. Forgetfulness, fatigue, mood swings, severe cramping, headaches and chronic pelvic pain. Everyday I regret getting the Essure implants and everyday I work hard to get the word out to help save other women. I refuse to get a hysterectomy, because I believe that I shouldn’t have to sacrifice my uterus and deal with the possibility of going through menopause before it’s time. I often pray for the Essure coils to fall out in the toilet or that I get pregnant. I don’t take care of my home or family like I use to and I am close to losing my job, from taking off work due to pain. I just want to be whole again and even give birth again. I will NEVER put so much trust in a doctor again, no matter how long I’ve know them. I am taking charge of my health and when I go to see a doctor I tell them what I want not the other way around. I am currently saving and looking for different ways to pay to have my Essure reversed. I will not give up on this fight, even once I am E-Free, I promise to fight to get these E-Devils off the market for GOOD! This is my story and I refuse to let Essure define my future!
