I had the Essure coils placed 3 years ago. I was told they had no side effects. I got a PID infection directly after the procedure and had cramps so bad that I had to go to the Emergency Room. I have constantly had pains in my left side since I got the placement. It is like someone stabbing with a knife. My periods have not really regulated since the placement and I have been on a two week cycle for about a year now. I bleed through over night maxi pads and ruin my clothes. I can barely get off the couch when I am on a period cycle. My mirganes increased to weekly and I an now on disability beacause of them. I have IBS with constant attacks of dirrhea or constipation. I also have rashes that appear randomly. I have had every test ran on me that could be run and they cannot find anything wrong scientifically. The only change in my life has been getting the Essure placement. I want the coils removed. I am told my OBGYN I feel that the coils are the problem and they state Essure cannot cause all this. They looked at me like I was crazy. Again, the Essure coils have been theis the only change in my life and I have been sick since I got them. There is no reason for me to be having a two week cycle or off cycles for three years. I have never had female problems my entire life until now. I know I am in for a battle to get them out. I want my life back so I must join this battle against Essure in my body.
