I had the Essure since October 2012. Since then I found it extremely difficult to lose weight, the more I tried the more I gained. I feel disgusting in my own skin. I not only look pregnant but feel pregnant, pain in all of my joints very hard to walk after waking up in the morning.,The dreaded walk down the stairs is going to kill me one day. My knees act up and the pain is horrible. Constant UTI’s I’ve incorporated yogurt into my diet to reduce the risk. I’m tired of feeling 80 years old. Urinary incontinence and the feeling that my bladder is always full even after I’ve gone to the bathroom. Painful periods with excruciating back pain, spotting after sex or in between periods. Getting my periods every 2 weeks. Hair falling out. Loss of focus always in a fog. The pain and fatigue are an everyday issue. I want to feel better!!! I went to the doctor, he had ordered a pelvic ultrasound. It was extremely painful due to 3 cysts and an enlarged uterus. Now the only way to fix this is to have a hysterectomy? Are you kidding me? I did not see anything on the warning label about the E-belly the frequent back pain or that it could cause other surrounding organs to become inflamed. I also was not aware of the toxic chemicals they used to induce scarring, How did this make it through the FDA without further investigation and granted the right to be dismissed from any harm? I would have never done this to my body. I was deceived by the fact that it had no hormones, so there was very little chance to gain weight. 3 weeks ago I believe I had a gallbladder attack. I felt extreme pain between my shoulder blades and it felt like I was having a heart attack because it hurt to breathe in. I took Alieve and the pain went away, but in the middle of the night I was fighting the urge to throw up. 20 minutes passes and extremely horrible diarrhea Developed, lost count of the many trips to the bathroom. I lost 7 lbs. Gained it back immediately after a day. The scary thing is that PET fibers used are known to cause cancers and should have never been used in medical implants, which I believe are causing my body to react and flair up with symptoms I’ve never had until Essure. I am still struggling with Essure as I just started a new job and cannot take time away from work just yet. But the thought of a major surgery that involves the taking away of my lady organs has me terrified.
