Hi, my name is Tiffany and I had the essure implants after I had my daughter almost 5 years ago… at first I wasn’t concerned when my periods got heavier and I was passing clots the.size of fruit. The cramps came unbearable, and I started getting sicker with every period. A year later I got really sick I started gaining weight no matter how hard I tried, I couldn’t remember little things, I couldn’t comprehend things (like stopping at a red ligbt), my periods started smelling like rotten animal, and I was miss I.g work because I was always sick, and became incontant.. I finally went to a.doctor and they diagnosed it as an infection. I was given meds the. Sent on my way. For about three months I felt better but then the smell came back I was still co.instantly sick and always tired, but I didn’t have the money to go to the doctor again. A year later I moved and started a new job. I started my period one day but it didn’t stop, I then started having seizures and was passing huge clots, I spent a month going in and out of the hospitial, there they drew blood and said it was fine, I was given pills for my seizures, I had x-rays done ultra sounds and apps done. They did Nero testing and Cat scans. Finially after three days I was told I was stressed and it was all in my head. I was put on a high dosage of zoloft, and was put on a pill to help the bleeding.
FF 6 months still hhaving heavy periods, seizures (though not common but there), And cramps I saw a specialist who put me on birth control. So three months later nothing got better the periods heavier, clots bigger and the fatigue horrible. I have a period for two weeks before I am able to have.a reprieve.. be for it all started my period were irregular and only last three days heavy then it was over… I’ve been to three different doctors ans they tell me it is not the essures. I then for some reason to do research. And read a side effect from some one that had the essure implants, and I was surprised that every things she went through I am.. after she had her hysterectomy her life is getting back on track.
When I was first told of these it seems the best way to go. There were no side effects, so I took that path. Now four yeArs later I am sicker then I have ever been in my life, I am bloated on a constant, I have seen doctors and they all didn’t believe me, I have eliminated foods from my life just in case, I still have seizures, and I am still fighting to find some one to believe me and help me.
