I got Essure in 2009. Since I have had aches and pains, heavy periods and sharp pains in my ovary area but I never thought it would be from Essure. In 2012 I had a severe HPV break out and an abnormal pap. I also started experiencing terrible body aches, joint aches and a severe rash on my hands. The doctors ran tests and all said were normal and the rash was just stress or dry skin. I tried anti-inflammatory for my muscles and steroid cream for my hands nothing worked. I finally went to a rheumatologist and she ran a muscle enzyme test. It came back 5 times higher than normal. By this time I could not move my hands at all and it would take me an hour to get out of bed. She suspect and auto immune disease called dematomyositis but to diagnose I had to have a muscle biopsy. I did and started treatment that included immune system lowering drugs that gave me other issues. I came down with a severe stomach bacteria my body could not fight off. I am now in remission for the dermatomyositis but the painful period, cysts on my ovaries and sharp pains remain. I have made an appointment to talk to my doctor about removing essure. At one point I had been poked and prodded so much I went into depression! Even seeing the light hurt. Everything hurt! I kept being told nothing was wrong!
