I’m 22 years old and have never had children and do not want children (if in the future I do I plan to adopt). So I decided to talk to my doctor about birth control options and was planning on something permanent, that’s when my doctor mentioned Essure. It sounded great. I asked about side effects and she said there were none or at least that she has heard about. I also asked about the coils possibly being rejected and she said maybe in 1 or 2 cases it has happened but it is very unlikely. I was told it is a quick, nearly painless proceedure and most women go right back to work no problem. So to me it sounded great, but I should have done more research of my own first but stupid me I trusted my doctor. So I booked my appointment. First lie I was told, that was the most painful/uncomfortable thing I have ever had done in my life. I wouldnt wish the pain I felt on my worst enemy. Second lie, there was no chance I could go right back to work. I ended up taking a week off and could barely move that week. I had to wear overalls because anything else was far to painful to wear. Then when I tried to go back to work I felt awful and ended up missing another week. Third lie, there are certainly side effects. I have been having pain in my abdomine on and off, I feel extremely nauses pretty well all of the time and nothing I take seems to be helping. I have headaches/feel dizzy and light headed everyday. No matter the amount of sleep I get I feel like I’m going to fall asleep standing. And my whole body feels like its on fire. Now, when I called my doctor about the pain that was going on much longer then she said it would she sent me for an ultra sound. A few days later I got a call back from her receptionist saying the test looked fine and my doctor has no explination for the pain, if I would like to make an appointment I can book one in a couple months because she is on vaction/booked up. I only got the proceedure done about a month and a half ago. If this continues I don’t think I can live like this. Once I began having these problems I decided to look a bit more into Essure (a little late) but thats what brought me here. If I had read all the problems women were having I don’t think I would have gotten this done (or if I had been better informed before hand) I plan to make an appointment with my doctor as soon as I can and see if there is anything she can do for me. Its mixed emotions finding out about the other women who have the same problems. I’m happy I’m not the only one but I’m angry that this is happening and it seems like each womens doctor hasn’t been properly informing them either. I wish had been smart enough to look all this up before going through with this. I wish I hadn’t trusted my doctor.
