Hi my name is Breeanne. I’m 27 years old and have three babies. I have had the Essure done after my youngest turned one. I knew that I did not want anymore children. So in July 2012 I got the Essure done. After the procedure I woke up and it felt like I had a c-section all over again.
They had me on three different pain med to give me comfort but I still felt pain. After I got home I was in so much pain and I was never told I would be so. I was very scared I was in pain for three weeks and bled for that period of time. I called the doctor twice during this time and I got the run around and was told it was normal.
I go to a different doctor now and he does not like the fact that my periods are 10 days long, which I never had before the procedure. Before I had the Essure, I was fine because I only had a 28-day cycle and my period was very light and only lasted about 4 to 7 days. Now my periods are very heavy and 10-day long . In addition, they are painful and even after my period is over I am still moody and cramping.
All the time my cramps get so bad that I have to take 4 motrin to help alleviate the pain. I can’t lose weight too. In the past I never struggled on losing weight. I and my husband are getting frustrated too because my sex drive is there but it hurts when we try anything. I wish I could just take this crap out of me. They make it sound like a walk in the park before you get it done and its really not. I regret with every bone in my body that I got this done.
