In December of 2008 I gave birth to my forth child at the age of 26 years old. I had a difficult delivery and afterbirth. My doctor at the time insisted that with every birth things can and will get worse so she begin her talks about Essure. I was a little skeptical at first because I was so young and wasn’t completely sure that I was done having children. I come from a large family so I wanted a large family myself. I went in for my 6 week postpartum check up and this is when my doctor bullied me into having this procedure done. She told me that if I were to have another child, I could die. She gave me graphic and horrific details about all the wrong things that could happen if I were to conceive again. She went on to tell me that I would be the perfect candidate for this procedure. She told me that it was virtually painless and that there were no side effects reported. It would be done in the office and that it would take no more than 45 mins. And then she sent me home to think about it. Well I figured she’s the doctor and she knows best. Again, I was young. I went along with the procedure. It went exactly as she said it would. Quick, easy and virtually painless. I resumed normal activity that afternoon and I thought life was great. Until a little less than a year later. I began with weird anxiety issues. I ended being diagnosed with Anxiety disorder and prescribe Sertraline. Shortly after that I began having pelvic pain and horrible migraines that would incapacitate me. I started to get vaginal infections quite frequently and my menstrual cycle began to change. (WARNING THIS IS TMI but you need to know) My periods became so heavy I would have to wear super plus tampons along with super absorbency pads because the bleeding would be so heavy I would leak through every time. I started getting cramps that would feel as though I was in labor and about to give birth to giant! I would pass clots the size of baseballs and had to stay out of work at times because it. I lost my health insurance so I was unable to see a doctor for these issues. I now have joint and bone problems. Back pain and muscles aches almost everyday. My sex drive is almost non existent. I am 31 years old and feel like I’m 60. I have chronic fatigue to the point where I can barely get up and do anything. I was never tested for nickel allergy so I am in the process now doing it at home. I have since developed allergies to almost everything. I wake up every morning with allergies and go to bed every night with them. I now have gotten insurance back and will be contacting a doctor. The doctor who inserted these EVIL COILS has since left the office that I go to and is now part of a private practice. I am 100% positive that these coils have ruined my health as I was never this unhealthy before in my life.
