I got Essure in February of this year. Not long after, I started getting daily migraines. I convinced myself it must be the weather changes, too much sleep, not enough sleep, etc. I completely lost my sex drive which my husband still can’t wrap his head around on how I could easily go the rest of my life without sex. I developed a rash on my face that my doctor thought was perioral dermatitis. After several months of every possible treatment, it’s still there and worse. I aquired an ulcer two months after my procedure, which I will live with for the rest of my life. I have two major flare ups a month, and lay in pain. I have excrutiatingly painful ‘periods’ where I have dark brown, disgusting discharge for a few days each month. I have bloating and weight gain despite the fact I can’t eat from my ulcer. I get dizzy just standing, and at night, as soon as I lay down, it feels like I’m drunk and have to hold the bed to stop spinning. I get monthly ovarian cysts now that land me in the ER crying in pain and throwing up…I had never had one before and thought my appendix had burst. I’ve missed months of work with no financial back up plan and four children to care for, the youngest being 10 months old. I started having a ‘slipped disc’ feeling in my back. I would attempt to stand, and when I got there, have to walk around rubbing my back like a pregnant woman. My last straw was feeling my coils stabbing and scraping the inside of my lower abdomen. I swear, someone gave my worst enemy a voodoo doll and a pin! It made me a believer in witchcraft…lol.. It took seeing the websites to realize that these were all linked to essure. I honestly thought my body was just falling apart at 32. I saw the gynecologist today, and I started telling him my problems. He didn’t question the validity of my claims, he didn’t tell me I was crazy and imagining things. He said ‘Let’s get these things out, my friend!’ He explained that not many women have come forward with essure problems, but there have been others. He removed them, and within a month, they were seeing changes in returning to their normal selves. Now I’m waiting on surgery scheduling to call me, and I can’t wait to finally be rid of this essure hell!
