I had essure implanted on September 1 2011 ,and my life has never been the same. Everything was fine for a few weeks then I got a horrible pain in my lower back around the kidneys the pain was so bad I was in bed for several weeks. Then the headaches started. After the headaches I started having 3 to 4 week long periods. The Dr put me on depo and I turned evil while I was on it, to the point that my son didn’t even want to live with me and he was only 7 at the time. I got off depo about a year ago and the periods are now so bad that if anything disrupts my uterus I start bleeding, the worst one lasted for 56 days. The Dr’s have run so many tests that I have lost count. Their diagnosis was a chronic infection in my uterus that has caused severe scar tissue and that’s what’s causing the bleeding, their solution was to say that I need to be on antibiotics for the rest of my life and to implant the mirena to stop the bleeding until I hit menopause. I’m only 39 I still have 10 to 15 years until I hit menopause. I refuse to take the antibiotics and refused the mirena cause I don’t want to be on a long term drug therapy. But if something doesn’t change soon I’m afraid I will lose my husband because we can’t be intimate at all, it’s been 8 months now and he’s trying to push me to get the mirena so the bleeding will stop. I need to find a Dr that will do a hysterectomy, but none seem to be willing to do it. I didn’t sign up for all this, and I was NOT told of the side effects and I don’t understand why the Dr’s that have done this to us refuse to admit there is a problem….
