My name is Ashley, I just turned 26 and I had the essure tubal 4 1/2 years ago. I have 3 wonderful sons and my husband and I decided that was plenty. We looked into our options and decided on the essure procedure because it was permanent and and seemed low risk. Since I had this procedure done I have had issues with my period not being regular, spotting for weeks at a time, passing out, excruciating headaches, extreme breast tenderness, and painful cramps. I have been to several doctors and nothing has been said about the possibility of my essure being to blame! I know that it is the problem after reading the testimonials. I recently had a 3 week period and have had nausea almost every night. I hope that my story can help someone the way that the ones I have read helped me. Helping me realize that all of this is connected is greatly appreciated. Now maybe I can get the help I need to feel normal again. Thank you everyone who shared their stories.
