After have 3 children and marrying a man with 3 of his own I decided I was done having children.
After evaluating options given Essure was the easiest, less expensive less evassive option…..at least to what I was told.
About 3 months after the 2nd procedure…my ‘easy dr procedure’ was only successful in 1 coil. I had to be later admitted to the hospital to have the 2nd one inserted because my body was rejection them. Anyway about 3 months after that I experienced heavy painful periods with large clots as discharge, within another 5 months from that I began having abdominal pain, craps outside my period, heavy mood and weight changes. At at about my 1 year mark I was hospitalizeda with unbareable pain in my abdomin and groin. The drs told me I had 5 cysts on my ovaries and could be experience them rupturing. After 5 days in the hospital on pain meds I was released with a ‘ sorry heres vicodin for pain’
I continue to battle severe pain even more during my period that Is heavy with clota the size of half dollars. I have severe mood swings, weight fluctuations, constant fatigue and naseaua after meals, migraine headaches, back pain and numbness.
This was the worst thing ive decided to do and would give anything to change it. The side affects were not discussed in full with me and certainly not as ‘easy’ as they told me.
