I had essure done after I asked to have my tubes tied. My Dr. said they really don’t like to do that anymore because downtime is to long. (Don’t get me wrong my OBGYN is an amazing Dr.) So I decided to go through with it. At first , there was no problems but, about four to five months later my periods were so heavy that for two days I did not dare to move to much or …well you understand. I had to actually get the pads used for incontinence . I was going through one complete package of those in two days. Then I started getting tired. So tired I could barely get out of bed. I told my Dr. , he proposed that we do a blood test. It came back that my body was very low on vitamin D. I personally think that I was anemic . No one can lose that much blood and not be !!!He gave me some vitamin D but I just decided to get out in the sun more, which seemed to work. For a while anyway. This went on for over two years. The blood clots were the size of softballs. It was horrible. Now he has me on low dose birth control pills , I don’t want birth control pills , that is why I had this done. It has helped with horrible heavy flow which I never had until this was done. Now my lower back, I want to say this has been going on for about two years, I can barely get out of bed in the morning. Its only right before I start my cycle. But I am not joking when I say my lower back hurts. I have to physically push my legs out of the bed or I have to lay there in severe pain trying to move my legs. I have never (not even in child birth) have had such horrible pain in my life. It only starts a week and a half before my cycle is to begin. I have been to two Doctors, they don’t care and did not listen and they tell me there is nothing wrong. When you can’t move your legs and literally have to push your legs out, screaming in pain..there is something wrong. I am at a loss here. If I stop taking the birth control pills my cycles are so heavy I dare not move for two days…and a week and a half before my cycle my lower back hurts . It feels like someone is stabbing me right in the lower back right above my pelvic area. Its really bad. I am tired of being in pain. I never had headaches , now I have headaches all the time, my entire body hurts some days for no apparent reason. I finally put two and two together and realized I never had any of these problems until I had these horrible coils put inside. I would just like to have them taken out. Just do it old school and tie my tubes :). Its my body and Essure has made me miserable.
Thanks for letting me vent my frustrations
