Hmmm- what a bummer this Friday was. Let’s start at the beginning.
My name is Kristina. I am now 31 years old. Five years ago I had the Essure procedure done after getting out of an abusive relationship, with the father of my kids. When I was first going to write this, I was going to add in little things that I felt were important for you, the reader, to know about me, things so that you could understand why I would or could even choose this as an option for myself. That I choose not to participate in Western medicine.That I understand the need for it in certain situtations, but I myself, nor my children yet, have had the need for this. That we rely on our Wise Women ways and the love that is given to us from the Earth. That in moments of weakness of myself, I chose this over an IUD. I chose this over taking a pill that, when I stopped at 18, was one of the reasons of my departure from western medicine, being I had no cycle for 6 months following. That I didnt know what else to do it seemed.
I say that my body is not even close to what it used to be. The doctor had trouble getting the right side. I thought that that was the one giving me pain all the time. It blew me away that I didnt stop bleeding two weeks after the procedure and went in to get it checked and they said it was fine. My cycle, that was with the moon my whole life, my cycle that I could have bet on when it would show, suddenly became sporadic. I dont bleed beautiful, healthy, bright, red blood now. I have clots. I sit on the toilet and a clump of blood falls from me. A pain shoots down my left leg. It slams into my back. I am only able to do certain yoga moves as I feel them in me or after I will have brown blood from my body. A month ago, after having love with my husband, I couldnt stand up straight for 18 hours. I couldnt pee for two. I thought I was losing my uterus from my body. I went to the doctor.
We did our test. My left one has implanted itself into the uterus. They couldnt see my right. Damn. Now I am scared. Even though I knew that something was wrong, I had hoped they hadnt moved. A women who in at least 12 years has not had so much of a advil, is being told by the doctors here in california that I need to have my uterus removed. I will stand stong and hopefully not have to succumb to that. I have hope that I can atleast just learn my lesson from this and not lose a part of my body for a wrong decision. I will pursue other options and am in the process of that. It’s amazes me how in our system, the one time i ask for help from our medical government, they help to place the Essure and paid for it all. When it comes to removal though, that seems to just be my problem that I have complications. Now we work towards finding the money and trusting that universe will provide as she always does. Spread your word ladies. I have been reading this post for 3 years now and know that the more we talk, the more information that is there from the ones experiencing it, the less it will happen. We are sisters in this land, and we need to support one another. Beautiful day
