I had the essure procedure done in October of 2008. I have regreted it since day 1 literaly! I was told that I would probaly not have a period again, and if I did it wouldnt be bad and not last long at all. Two weeks after the procedure I started my period, and it lasted a total of 3 weeks, horrible cramps and blood clots. I have had to be put on birth control pills to help control my periods and cramps , but that just started yet another period tha lasted over a month. The mood swings were horrible, I was depressed for at least a year almost like post partum depression. About a year after the procedure I started feeling bad, I had all the pregnancy symptoms, I took a pregnancy test and it was positive. I went to the dr and had a blood test and was told that I was not pregnant just hormone levels were off and had to be put on birth control yet again. I had this procedure done, so i would not have to take a pill wveryday and worry about another pregnancy. I have called my dr numerous time and asked to have the implnat remobved only to be told he cant. My periods have never been this horrible in my entire like, they last for 5 days, I must wear a tampon and pad at same time because of the clots. I cramp all the time always feel like Im about to start. I have been told that I now need a hysterectiomy because of this procedure. Having this procedure done was the worst thing I have ever done, I regret it everyday!
