I had my Essure implants inserted back on 03/28/2012 and never realized that all my health issues would be coming from this devise. let me start off by saying that when they inserted them they assured me I’d feel no pain…WRONG. I yelled so loud from the pain as they pushed them in that my boyfriend sitting outside in the waiting area heard me ( I was all the way in the back of a large office that unless you yelled loud people in waiting area would not hear you, it was at a PlannedParenthood facility). Shortly after procedure was done I was in excruciating pain that they had to prescribe me narcotics. Few months later I started having lower back pain, headaches, my menstruation flow got real heavy and with cramps ( never had this, it was always very light and no cramps), have been experiencing dizziness and nausea, getting a lot of UTI’s and lately my kidneys have been hurting. I recently had to be admitted to the hospital due to my kidneys hurting really bad and was told it was just a very bad UTI. What does not make since is how can I get a UTI without me having any symptoms until the infection went up to my kidney and left me in excruciating pain?? Plus, after they had me on some heavy antibiotics, pain pills and my symptoms subsided, why is it that my kidneys still give me a twinge? As a woman I don’t care what the doctors say you just know your own body and know when something is off. I started thinking if all these symptoms could be related to this devise, so I started researching into it and sure enough I found stories of so many women going through similar if not same issues. Why were these side effects not disclosed to us and why was not the proper training given to doctors to safely remove these devises without having to make women go through a hysterectomy. NOT RIGHT on the manufacturer, the FDA for approving and the doctors for agreeing to perform this procedure without more training and knowledge. Therefore, these people must be stopped from making, approving and inserting this devise, it needs to be off the market soon!
