I had essure done in 2011 after I had my daughter and gall bladder removed as well within a matter of 4 months. I remember that day well when I went to dr. for the procedure they had given me half a volume to relax me and then 30 min later the other half. Then when he was implanting them I recall him saying right after that he haad some women say they had worse periods and pain but he didnt think it was from the procedure. He told me after he got done implanting them. Then he said I could go home. I got home and no sooner than I got home i ran to the bathroom feeling nauseated and felt like I was gonna faint. Then it stopped. I really didnt think about it after that but do recall that a week before my cycle my back was going through some major pains. Still really didnt think nothings just thought it was from having this done. Well then after about a year with dealing with pains just before my cycle Im now dealing with everyday back pain that doesnt go away unless I use biofreeze or some other pain relief which only last so many hours then I have to put more on. I had no idea untill today I was searching the net on different things and can across people saying it was affecting them and side affects. I had no idea of all these side affects and problems. Come to think about it I have had strange rashes that come and go and had no idea what was causing them. Here recently I had done a test and they said there was too much protein in my kidneys but thats all they said to me and told me to take the pills they prescribe. I dont know if that has anything to do with the essure or not but these are my health issues since getting it done. I also have stomach pains throughout the day for no reason that kinda feels like when I had gall stones. Sometimes I get sharp pains in my back/sides for no reason the only reason I havent brought it up to a doctor is because the first thing they ask is how is your stress and then they try to blame pain on depression. Sometimes my pain makes me aggitated and I dont mean to be but its kinda like a mood swing. After reading some of the stories I have read I will be making an apt. to see whats going on. I have even had headaches for a week straight before but I have other health issues and didnt think nothing of it as well. I just hope nothing is serious wrong and I really think im gonna try to have them removed.
