Can Essure make your hair fall out?

Many women have complained of hair loss after having undergone Essure sterilization procedures.

In studies submitted to the FDA, approximately 3% to 9% of women will have pain 12 months after undergoing Essure sterilization.

Initial FDA studies did not have large numbers of women to look for Essure hair loss but as more women have the procedure some are starting to have hair loss and have begun to ask the question, “Can Essure make your hair fall out?”.

Symptoms with Essure

The most common symptom experienced by women after Essure is inserted is pain and cramping within the first month. Usually this will go away but almost 1 out of 10 women will report pain or discomfort 12 months or more after their Essure procedure.

Some of these women will also experience joint pain, rashes, fatigue, and hair loss.

Why would Essure make your hair fall out?

It is very uncommon to have hair loss with Essure and it is unclear why this would happen. In some Essure patients it could be circumstantial but in others their could be a direct relationship. Some have speculated hair loss is a direct effect of the nickel metal located in the outer Essure coil and others have suggested hair loss could be an autoimmune illness experience by some after Essure is inserted.

Essure Problems Have Women Speaking Out

Essure is a birth control that is meant to be permanent. This Essure consists of spring-like coils that are inserted into the fallopian tubes. After the coils are inserted scar tissue forms in the tubes and the end result is the fallopian tubes being completely blocked.

Women usually choose the Essure because there is no surgery involved and the time to recuperate is minimal. After three months the patient is instructed to go for a HSG to make sure the fallopian tubes are indeed fully blocked.

Most women are happy with the choice they have made in this birth control. But, there are women that are having Essure problems and are asking for help. Because this product is relatively new many physicians tell them that the coils cannot be removed without a hysterectomy. The sad truth is that women will have the hysterectomy without realizing that Essure is reversible.

Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith of Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center have women contacting them on a regular basis to see if they can remove the coils due to the Essure side effects. Most women have searched for a while and seem to be getting no answers or even a physician in the medical world to admit that Essure problems are happening. The reason may be that the physicians just do not have enough experience with the Essure because it is still considered so new. Often, because the physician is still learning about Essure they do not always want to believe that women are experiencing as much pain as they state they are.

The most important thing to remember is that you know your body better than anyone. If you have a pain where the coils are then you have a pain. A million physicians can tell you this cannot happen but they do not feel what goes on inside your body.

Essure issues are happening and women are talking about it.

Dr. Berger and Dr. Monteith have made it clear that Essure removal and Essure reversal is very possible. For those that want more children the Essure reversal is performed. For those that just want to get rid of the side effects there is Essure removal. With the removal the fallopian tubes are not reattached back to the uterus so there is no worrying about another form of birth control.

If you are having Essure problems you are certainly not alone. There are many women who are going through the same thing and are being sent from one physician to the next. A full hysterectomy is not needed and there is Essure relief available.

For more information on Essure reversal and removal the tubal reversal nurses are available to speak with you by calling 1-919-968-4656.

Women Need To Take Charge

How many women do you know that will tell you she absolutely knows something is wrong but her doctor is saying there isn’t? If this hasn’t happened to you chances are you know someone this has happened to.

Women need to be their own advocates. Nobody knows your body better than you do. And if you do not get the answers you are seeking then you need to keep on with your battle. You are in charge and it needs to stay that way. Only you are in control of what happens to your body and not anyone else.

Many women will go to her physician and tell the doctor what is wrong. After explaining all of the symptoms the doctor will look at her and tell her what she is feeling can’t be happening. The woman leaves the physician’s office feeling not only frustrated but also second-guessing herself. This woman has two choices. She can go home and live with the problem or she can take a stand and research and demand answers.

We see this everyday with women. We read stories and messages from women who are suffering and searching for answers. Two very true instances are women suffering with Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome and Essure Problems.

The women that fall into the above two categories are women that suffer daily. They suffer from the time they get up in the morning and sometimes right through the night.

But, women are also very strong. They research until they find the answers and they also find others that are going through similar issues. The women posting on the article Essure Problems Continue Among Woman explains one such issue. These women are fighters and not willing to give up.

Another great story is Megan’s Story: PTLS Syndrome: Megan’s Experience. After going through the aftereffects of tubal ligation she wouldn’t give up. Megan knew something was wrong and kept researching to find the answer. After finding the answer she is now posting and blogging and has a Facebook Page so that others will know they are not alone. Megan has become the spokeswoman for PTLS Syndrome and states even if she helps just one woman she has managed to do what she set out to do.

Women need to speak up and let the world know that these things are happening. Essure IS causing problems and Post Tubal Ligation Syndrome is real!

If you have a story to share please do. There are many women who are looking for answers and you may just have what it takes to help another or to find someone who is going through the exact same thing you are.

Essure Problems Continue Among Women

After having more than a few women write about the problems they were having after having the Essure procedure I wanted to read more. The amazing thing is the large number of women that seem to be having issues.

After conversing with a few I have decided to write some of the main problems and concerns that have been shared.

  • Women wish they had been told more about the actual procedure. That it can and is painful for many. Many times trying to get the actual Essure spring into the fallopian tubes causes more pain than the patient expected. This may be due to the fallopian tube itself having a spasm.
  • Women are upset that they were not told about the cramping and discomfort after the procedure itself.
  • Many patients say the actual procedure was sugar coated by the physician when being told about it.
  • Back pain and uncomfortable intercourse that is unexplained.

Although Essure is considered to be a permanent form of birth control it is reversible. Chapel Hill Tubal Reversal Center has been reversing the Essure for some time now with good results. Essure reversal is explained on the blog and accompanied by a true patients story.

If you are having issues after having the Essure procedure I would love to hear from you. Many women are searching for answers and others that are having the same problems.
