I had this procedure done in 2009, after giving birth to my fifth and final baby. I was told this was the only procedure available in the northern Kentucky area for permanent birth control. I was also told there were little side effects and no possibility of pregnancy.the things I were not told were that this procedure would take control of my body and my mind. Since having this done I have had the worse periods of my life, with clots that felt like I was giving birth and the pain to go along with them. I also started to gain weight and after having a baby and getting back down to my normal size this was really strange. I then started to feel really depressed and felt like I was losing control of everything. I had passed out at work one day and was sent to the er after many tests on my heart was sent on my way and after seeing my dr I was told I suffered from anxiety disorder and depression and was put on anti depressants. I was totally out of control by this time and went through months of switching meds to try to feel better. In the meantime I suffered from horrible pains in my stomach which my dr told me were gas pains, terrible leg cramps, night sweats, hot flashes, fatigue, headaches and numbness in my hands abd feet.I couldn’t sleep and was put on another med. I never thought that all this could be related to the essure yet I was not the same person I was before I had it done.I feel like I have agreed twenty years. I go next week to a different dr and I am hoping for a way out of this nightmare. I want my life back.
