When I was 22 yrs old I decided after my second child I din’t want anymore and was looking into birth control options. My doctor recomended several different types and we decided assure was the best suited. The surgery was fast and for the first year everything about it seemed to be okay. I did ask if the coils would cause cervical cancer and he told me no, that if anytthing I would show signs earlier and be able to take action faster to beat cancer. As time went by I began to have severe abdominal pain. The pain was so severe that I couldn’t even walk without getting shooting pains through my lower abdomin. I then began having periods every two weeks and then every three weeks, all I knew is I didn’t think any of it was normal. About a week before my period I would have symptoms like I was pregnant ( extreme nausea, fatigue, tender breast and hot flashes) I never came up pregnant but the symptoms were the same every month. As more time went by I began having almost pressure like pains in my stomach, if I sat down it felt like all of my organs were being pushed up into my stomach and then causing more severe pain. I went to my doctor who has stated several times that I have a swollen uterus and she would put me on prescribed anti inflammatory medicine. Eventually she sent me to a urologist thinking that maybe it was my bladder causing all of the se problems. ( In the mean time she told me it has nothing to do with the essure procedure) I went to the urologist and went through several test and he founf nothing except for a weak bladder and a little piece of advice. He told me that even though my coils were in place he thought that all of my problems came from the essure procedure and that since I have nickel allergy that could also be the main source that is causing my uterus to swell. I now am experiencing the same problems and yet to find any help with it. I keep having the same symptoms and I am getting very tired of the pain. I do not want a hysterectomy for the simple fact that I am only 28 yrs old and I no longer have medical insurance. I am really hoping that in the near future there is a way to fund removal for women who are unhappy and having difficulties with the coils. I also hope that nothing serious comes out of any of it.
