I am 30 years old and feel as if my body is 60 or older. 4 Years ago I had the Essure procedure after having our fourth child. It was presented to me as a great new noninvasive form of permanent birth control with minimal side effects. Thought it sounded great, was one of the first in my area to have it done in the doctors office walked in and out like I had nothing done and felt great. 4 months later I had an enlarged lymph node that had to be removed in my neck and have spent the last 4 years seeing oncology for not Cancer but enlarged lymph nodes. This would be one of many complications to arise. I started losing feeling and gaining numbness and tingling which mimics MS but isn’t MS according to Doctors. My husband and I have been asking for years if any of my symptoms breast tenderness, fullness, pain, migrains, lack of period, fatigue, insomnia and cloudy mind had anything to do with the Essure as I didn’t have any of these issues prior to the procedure. Or that I have cysts on my liver and ovary with no explanations as to why. I have been told NO that there haven’t been any proven facts that would suggest that any of my symptoms could be related to the Essure. I have spent 4 miserable years trying to figure out what is going on with me and why my body is betraying me and affecting my daily life in order to take care of my four children and my husband. Countless hours of blood draws, MRI/CAT Scans, multiple specialist all telling me the same thing they have no idea why I have all these symptoms. It wasn’t until we started doing our own research that we found proof that YES it could be related to the Essure.
