In April of 2012 we welcomed a new little bundle of joy. Little did I know but the next 7 months would be hell. Four days after I had my son I was diagnosed with Cardiomyopathy and almost died. My cardiologist said that if I tried to have more kids my heart would give out. My OBGYN decided that it was to much of a risk to put me to under to tie my tubes so we went with Essure. I was told that it would be painless and I would be fine by the afternoon. But in reality I was down with pain for three days after I had them placed. By by day three everything seemed to be ok. Well two days later the horror started. I would be fine one minute and the next I would fall to the floor in horrible pain. It felt like someone was ripping my insides out. I had this strange rash that would show up in different places. I also started what I thought was my menstrual cycle coming back but I was wrong. For the next 7 months I had horrible pain, bleeding, mood swings, and couldnt sleep. So finally after countless office visits my OBGYN decided they needed to come out and the only way to get them out was a hysterectomy! So in November 2012 at the age of 28 I had my hysterectomy. Essure impacted my life in a horrible way. As a result of my hysterectomy I entered menopause at 30 and have put on so much weight that it has effected the way I see myself. I would give anything to go back and not get Essure!
