So I have always been a health 34 yr. old female, taking no medication on a daily basis, but I felt my health getting worse for the last 7 plus months. I had the following symptoms and pain since the placement of ESSURE on May 30, 2013. I feel I was mislead with ESSURE there are more side effects than benefits of this device.
These coils have absorbed a sterilizing agent, ethylene oxide, doesn’t dissipate and can seep into your body via the coils. The sterilizing agent is a known carcinogen and can be absorbed into the pet fibers in the coils and when pet fibers come into contact with salt or saline solution this carcinogen agent can be released even further into the body.
I have had weight gain (currently the heaviest I have ever been), heavy/ severe bleeding and clotting which has sent me to the ER to then be placed on hormones for 10 days to stop/ control the bleeding, severe cramping, headaches/ migraines weekly, hair loss, my skin is so different(breaking out/rashes/blistering under jewelry), moody, exhausted daily, can’t sleep, hard to focus (in a fog/dizzy), spasms/ vibrating (where coils are, almost like I have my cell phone on me), emotional, extremely bloated, stabbing pains in my abdominal area.
Went to my OB-GYN several times requesting my coils to be removed only to be told its not the coils, its possible I could be in early menopause or endometriosis. Finally I had enough I researched all I could and joined a facebook group www.facebook.com/groups/Essureproblems/ (over 5,500 women who all have the same problems from essure) and got all the info I needed to stand up for myself and be heard from my OB-GYN, well after her reading all my letters and documentation she finally agreed with me and we are getting these out!
My surgery date is January 23, coils will be finally removed and I can start to feel like me again!!! Oh and I filed a complaint with the FDA!!
Thank you to my amazing husband for dealing with me through all of this, he has been my rock and my biggest supporter!! Thank you all for listening to me!! <3
