I am now 26 years old. I had my daughter on October 20, 2009. When my doctor asked me if I’d thought about birth control I said I wanted tubal ligation. They told me about the Essure procedure and said that’s how they do it now. They made it seem wonderful. Let me tell you it was anything but and still is anything but wonderful.
I consistently bled for a straight 6 months after the coils were inserted. I have these terrible pains in my pelvic area all the time and my back hurts constantly. Sex is painful and I’m always tired. I eat pretty healthy and I try to stay active. However weight loss has been almost impossible. I started seeing a doctor to help me get the rest of the weight off and nothing is really helping me. I know it has something to do with these coils.
I have an appointment in a couple weeks to see a new gyn to see if everything I suspect is true. I want these coils out and as far as I’m concerned they should do a nickel allergy test on every women before moving on with the procedure, and they should list all negative side effects. I’ve had these implants in for a little over 3 years now and I have been miserable since day 1 so I’m going to try my best to have them taken out. If any one reading this is thinking about having this done I highly recommend you change your mind and go a different route.
