I got Essure done back in April of 2012 because I didn’t want to have a major surgery. Everything was fine, so I thought.
I soon broke out in a rash from hell. Two trips to the ER and then a trip to an allergist. Never did I think the Essure had anything to do with it. The rash comes and goes and I have a special cream that I use that is suppose to help.
I started walking with a friend and I noticed my feet would swell. I thought ‘wow I must really be out shape for this to happen’. I was 40 years old and I used to dance every weekend. Never had this problem before.
I joined a gym and started doing boot camp style workouts and I noticed the second month in to it I was struggling more than the first month. It was odd because I was working out3-5 days a week and I thought my energy level would increase. It never did! I was also gaining more belly weight. So now I’m working out more and harder and eating even better. I hire a personal trainer because I’m trying to lose a few pounds for my wedding. Never happened. I continue to gain more and more weight. I look 6 months pregnant.
I have been going to multiple doctors for multiple reasons and never thinking this could be linked to essure. Dermatologist for crazy acne that I didn’t have before. Gastro for different reasons. Urologist for kidney problems. All after essure.
My joints hurts to the touch. I now have food allergies and gluten is now a problem. My back stays in constant pain. I have headaches to where I never had any before. I have brain zaps and my pelvic area vibrates out of the blue. Painful intercourse, no sex drive. It’s hard to get out of the bed some days, and when I do get out of bed it’s hard to get me out of the house. I am now depressed where I never was before. I have so many side effects I never told my Dr half of them beause I thought they were ‘to crazy’. It wasn’t until I went to the essure problems face book page and I started reading all of the horror stories. They were all my stories just told by different ladies. It was an alarming wake up call to say the least. Thank you for help getting this story out! If we can save at least one woman from having this done, it’s worth it!
